My Students

I teach 6 groups of 30 students (I know it's a lot) in PE classes and my students are fabulous. They are truly motivated for sports although they are kind of nerds.

I also coach high school football, basketball, cross country, and track and field.

However, as a public school, funding is always tight and we miss the basic things. As I try to help my students get appropriate equipment, I hope that you, good DonorsChoose supporters, will want to help us. Thank you very much.

My Project

The BFHS Table Tennis Club needs a new table tennis table! We recently obtained one through DonorsChoose and the wonderful donors who participate in this beautiful program.

As I sponsor a group of forty club members at school, another tennis table would be absolutely wonderful!

We have four table tennis tables, three of which are falling apart.

Help!

The table we are looking to replace has legs that are very wobbly and two corners that have broken off.

We try to provide students who are staying home after school with fun activities that involve moving around, interacting with other kids while learning fair play and cooperation, all of this in a good spirit.

We provide students a safe and supportive space to learn table tennis and we wouldn't be able to continue without your help!

Thank you for considering our project!
