My Students

I am a physical education teacher in a small, rural town. I am interested in adding new sports equipment in our school for my students to incorporate in their individualized physical fitness plans.

My students deserve the best physical education equipment and I am determined to seek out any and all resources, tools and technology that will make that a reality.

Our school has grown in numbers during this year due to consolidations of some of our surrounding schools. I would like to give ALL of our students an equal opportunity to be successful in their physical education experience.

My Project

I am interested in taking the regular physical education classroom environment that students are use to and transforming it into an atmosphere that ALL students are eager to participate, by building a rock climbing wall.

The presence of a rock climbing wall immediately triggers the interests of not only students but adults as well, increasing the outcome for children to be actively engaged and interested in maintaining a level of physical fitness.

Rock climbing works both your upper and lower body muscles. You will strengthen muscles in your back and arms when pulling yourself up, and you’ll be forced to engage the muscles of your core, quads, and calves to stabilize your body while climbing.
