My Students

I teach in a lower income based school. We have a 75% poverty rate and no funding to help extracurricular needs. When our students show up for games, they look and feel like they have already lost. There is a disparity that takes place. We have to cancel sports due to lack of funding or uniforms. Most students have a sense of being cast aside by the district and do not have a complete understanding that they can accomplish amazing things no matter where they come from.

I want to make a lasting impact for my students.

I believe that they can do amazing things and know that, if given the chance, they can shine. Our school has accomplished a lot in the last three years. We are making grounds in our testing areas and I believe that making leaders will continue to assist us in growth.

My Project

This will allow students to develop team skills and leadership potential. We have not had a baseball team in multiple years. Students have had to pay huge amounts if they want to play. Instead of playing they just give up. It is sad that these inner city kids do not get the opportunities of others. Schools within our district get the funding mainly through diners. Being a low socio-economic area, it is hard to find those who are able to donate for students. By donating, you will be giving a child the chance of a life time. Please help out.

The major items we are needing are uniforms and gear for the students to play.

The cost for the team alone is well over a 1000 dollars. With no funding, we need help in getting the students the items that they need. Uniforms are the most things that we need. The help there would be a blessing to these students. Some have bats and gloves of their own, but there are several who do not.
