My Students

Our students are students who have experienced a lot of pain and trauma in their lives. They are at our school as a last chance option as all other placements have failed them. Even though our students come with many issues and emotional problems, they still have a lot of love and compassion to give.

We have many students who call us (the teachers, support staff and clinicians) their family and look to us for support and care because they have no other place to get it.

Our students need a therapeutic environment in order to thrive and succeed and our goal here is to give them that environment.

My Project

I work with emotionally disturbed youth who often need a positive outlet to channel their energy. Many of our students aren't necessarily "athletes" who enjoy typical sports, rather they enjoy unique challenging games.

Cooperation and team building are important aspects of physical education and this game is one that teaches both.

Our students frequently have conflict with one another and to be able to get them to actually work together and have a good time together is priceless.

Every student needs to learn the importance of working with someone even if they don't like them and despite their differences; this 9 Square in the Air game would provide the students with that opportunity.
