My Students

Economically disadvantaged youth are in need of the best opportunities educators and the community can provide. Closing the academic achievement gap is still a very real and challenging process. While students are working hard in the classroom, they still need adequate physical activity throughout their day.

The students in my classroom consist of youth from economically disadvantaged families to middle class families; we are in need of community support to increase physical activity.

Many of my students do not have access to resources that will support their continued education after they leave school. They enjoy school, and desire to continue to achieve. My students have shown significant growth in reading and math; they have lead their district in the growth rates. In addition, they enjoy participating in activities which allows them to exercise and work as members of a team.

My Project

The equipment in this project will allow students to experience more sport opportunities. The purpose of the project is to teach students in urban, underrepresented populations, about sport activities other than what they may be accustomed to in their neighborhood. Archery will also open up opportunities for students who are not as skilled in sports such as basketball, soccer, football, and volleyball. Archery does not require a particular body type, athleticism or running abilities.

The National Archery in Schools Program (NASP) has proven to improve academic performance and reduce dropout rates amongst students.

The equipment that I am requesting will allow me to work with the Department of Natural Resources and National Archery in Schools Program to bring the success of NASP to a Detroit school, thereby working to promote quality education, and student enjoyment in school.
