My Students

When you walk into our middle school, you enter a culture and climate of PRIDE. Our students, despite their low socioeconomic status, exhibit perseverance, respect, discipline, and integrity daily in their approach to academics and sports. Their will to be great even when working on an unequal playing field motivates me to support their efforts and acquire adequate resources to help them achieve their dreams.

Our school is a Title I school, and our community of parents do their best support their children.

Our extra-curricular goals require developmental resources that bridge instructional practices. Our students excel when their passions are linked to rituals and routines developed in the classroom. Our students are champions waiting their turn.

My Project

Every day I have the blessing of witnessing young men walk into a weight room with basically nothing inside of it and still give their best. We have to get creative and "make" our own equipment. I know that if my kids are given the opportunity and resources that other children get, this will jump start our program.

In order to give my athletes access to a plane of equality, we need the resources to help us compete with other programs.

Certain items like resistance bands, power sleds and recoil packs will definitely help us out. We will longer have to ask the question, "What if my students had the same resources that schools in better neighborhoods get?" Thanks to donorschoose.org, obtaining these supplies can actually be accomplished. I want to thank you in advance for your donations. The help is greatly appreciated.
