Jon-Isaac Brookes (JIB) has spent his lifetime engaged in physical activities. His belief in the power of movement lead him to a degree in PE from Appalachian State University where he studied how moving the body supported learning and a positive health and wellness experience. JIB worked as a river raft guide where he supervised other rafters as they tirelessly worked to provide a safe and fun experience on the river. JIB now works as the full-time recess teacher at a low performing school in Raleigh NC where he witnesses every day the power of movement in promoting wellbeing in the students.
