My Students

My team is young and ambitious. They wrestle as individuals and work hard as a team. We are a team filled with many students who have never wrestled before but want to step into a world that challenges them physically as well as mentally with strategy.

My wrestlers want to make their mark.

This year has been filled with obstacles as we had to endure Hurricane Irma, a hurricane that ravaged the city and kept the kids away from education and their extracurricular activities for over 12 days. A hurricane that pushed many outside of the norms of comfort. Returning to school for many of them was their escape, and being involved in school became their solace.

My Project

Lately I have been getting many students that have been displaced because of Hurricane Maria. They have come to this new setting with barely anything. These students have been forced to rebuild in a completely new area.

My students need a chance to connect to the world.

Since many of the students that have been displaced by Hurricane Maria do not have resources such as a laptop, having a MacBook Air will help them get creative in their learning of world history. The MacBook Air will provide a means for them to be able to connect to classmates they left behind and hopefully allow them to transition better by knowing that keeping in touch is a possibility. Through this project I hope to be able to make it easier for my displaced students to adjust to their new setting.
