My Students

I teach at a Title I school with over half of our population falling in the category of economically disadvantaged. I am the girl's athletic coordinator and also the head volleyball coach. We are a big football school so the football booster club is always well funded. This is my first year here and we are way past due for a program overhaul, we just need a little help to get headed in that direction. Thank you for taking the time to read about my students.

My Project

I teach at a Title I school with over half of our population falling in the category of economically disadvantaged. I am also the girl's athletic coordinator and volleyball coach. Our supplies budgets are not great so we need help getting the equipment we need to train our girls. Our program is given the same budget as every other program but yet we have 60 more girls than any other program. This equipment will give us more tools to help us in practice and give us the same competitive advantage as other schools in our area get. Anything we receive would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read about our needs.
