My Students

I teach within the city of Philadelphia at a K-8 public school. Prideful is the word that comes to mind when explaining how the children feel about their own neighborhood.

The students I teach are unbelievably motivated to attend my class and are excited from the minute they step into the door until they leave.

My students are always looking forward to learning new things in exciting ways. The children are respectful and willing to do what it takes to make our school a great place to learn.

My Project

We are requesting all purpose balls for Phys Ed. class. Each and every student at our school will be using this equipment in one way or another and they will be using it numerous times!

The equipment at our school gets used day in and day out not only at recess, but at class game time and Physical Education class too.

It's important that this equipment is durable because of the amount of throwing, kicking, rolling, and bouncing it will endure the next few years.

Students from Kindergarten to 8th grade will be using these balls for a multitude for reasons including manipulative challenges, target games, instant activities, team games, and much much more!
