My Students

We are a Title I school, most of our scholars come from disadvantaged families and have special needs. We are a school with minimum resources, and our scholars work hard each and everyday to achieve success. My students are one of a kind, I wouldn't even say that, they are extraordinary! They love coming to my class and I love seeing their happy smiles as well. Teaching my students about living a healthy life style through fitness and health is very important. I truly believe it also helps students academically in the classroom.

My Project

I am enjoying working with my young boys and teaching them the basics of basketball on my team. They are improving daily. To make sure they continue training and growing in basketball, I need a few more wall mounted basketball goals. These goals would allow players to work on individual and partner skills. The more goals I have, the more boys I can train at one time.

It is important to me that I don't have to turn away any boy that wants to be a part of our basketball family and team.

With your help, I can reach more boys and teach them about the game of basketball.
