Healthy teachers are

Hey! I'm Lara, creator of this little happy planet, Fit & Healthy Teacher.

I am a 3rd grade teacher who loves my job and was tired of feeling fatigued and drained, reaching for a bottom drawer sugar bomb at 4:00 p.m. Years ago,  I figured out a way to get fit, eat well, and improve my overall mood with easy-to-follow steps and an impressive list of accumulated resources. I’ve maintained my weight and overall health for fifteen years and I’m excited to help other teachers do the same. I'm on a mission! I'd like to inspire as many teachers as I can to get healthy so they can be at their absolute best for their families, students, colleagues and community. You can do this! Let me help.


" Lara has a way of getting to the heart of the matter when it comes to taking on the health quest. Her humor and candor are refreshing in the world of fitness and health information. I was able to implement the changes and see a huge difference in my health! Thank you, Lara, for providing an excellent resource with heart. "


" I loved this book! It gave me easy steps to take charge of my health. I've been so sad for so long about stalling with an exercise plan. Lara made me feel like I could get the ball rolling on having a healthy body. I'm so glad I found you, Lara!"
