My Students

I am a PE teacher, teaching 6 sessions weekly and I also am the football coach and a baseball coach. I wear lots of hats!

Thanks to grants by Drew Brees, the NFL, and private donors, we were able to renovate the locker rooms (boys and girls) and to build a new concession stand/handicapped accessible restroom and pressbox.

We will get the keys to the concession stand within a month.

These new features constitute a great incentive to motivate the football team to succeed. The team has approximately 40 members and I teach approximately 150 kids in PE.

My Project

Baseball training is about creating stability in the core of the player, gain rotational power, build fast-twitch muscle fibers, encourage shoulder stability and mobility and, most importantly, develop leg strength.

Training will help my players make themselves better baseball players.

The items that I requested, the four power sticks and the different kinds of balls -- soft, smaller -- will also enable the players to hit better. In particular, the jugs bucket of small balls will teach the hitter to track ball from release point to impact zone.

Thank you very much for considering the support of my baseball team. We could not do it without you!
