My Students

I have the amazing pleasure of working with a talented group of students year after year. As an educator, I learn from them daily without them telling me "the lesson."

My students are very unique in their own way; however, when they come together, the characteristics and qualities they bring to the group are endless.

I work with the most-spirited group of students in the entire school, but you can call them School 24 Bulldog Cheerleaders! They will greatly benefit from materials that allow them to perform to the best of their ability!

My Project

These materials will make a difference in my students' learning by helping them understand the proper ways to take precautions in sports.

There has been a societal push to make safety an integral part in school sports for a multitude of years.

Having students understand the proper safety in team sports translates in other areas outside of sports. With the advancement of technology, it appears as if more and more students are going away from team sports. I would like to show them that being an individual is just as amazing as collaborating with a group of highly-talented and motivated individuals.
