"I'm trying to give myself just a little bit of leeway as I figure out how to balance life as a busy elementary school teacher and an athlete."

That is a quote from a blog entry written by Jennifer Strosin as part of the O2 Modern Fitness Challenge.

Jennifer is a fourth grade teacher at Ocotillo Ridge Elementary School in the Vail School District who was determined to re-discover her "best self." This past summer she participated in the O2 Modern Fitness Challenge, a health and fitness training program run by O2 Modern Fitness owner Susan Frank.

On this week's Teachers' Voices listen to how Jennifer's quest is rubbing off on her students.
