Aptos TEACH: Tigers Educating and Advocating for Campus Health

Meet the Aptos TEACHersClass of 2012

 

Isabell Wu, 12, 7th grade

What health information do you want to share with the rest of the school and why?
I want to share this information with the school because some people may eat a lot but they don’t have enough vitamins and things like that. They need to eat healthier, more fruits and vegetable, and less cookies, cupcakes, and sodas.

My favorite animal is a puppy because they are so cute. You can play with them all day and you can train them to do tricks.

Angel Castro, 11, 7th grade

What health information would you like to share with the rest of the school and why?
I would like to share about bullying because I think that it is a serious topic and that many people are affected by it in some way. I would also like to share information about drugs and alcohol because it’s not a healthy life choice and everyday people die from it.

My favorite colors are royal blue and aqua/ turquoise (I like bright colors) because it reminds me of waterfalls and the water in a tropical reef. It’s bright, but it’s also soothing and calming to me.

It was everything I hoped for and more. I wish everyone could have an opportunity to join!
