My Students

Imagine moving to a new country. You walk into a classroom and you may not have ever had any formal education before. You have never read or written and you have this smiling teacher talking to you in a language you don't understand. These are some of the students I teach every day.

I work in a school with a very high ESL population in the inner city of Houston, Texas.

Plus, our school was devastated by the horrific floods of Harvey. Many of my scholar were displaced and lost everything during the Harvey hurricane.

We help students learn English while holding on and becoming literate in their own language as well. My students have come from many different and often difficult situations. They hold the American Dream, but need the tools to make them successful.

Also, they are great athletes and have the heart of a champion because they play sports with passion. They run like the wind and catch balls with ease. These children understand sports and are very competitive just like our Houston Astros.

My Project

Cycling sport is competitive physical activity using bicycles. As a low-impact sport, cycling has enormous health benefits. For-example, it is a good muscle workout, improves joint mobility, and increases cardiovascular health. These donations will make an impression on my scholars because most have never experience this sport. Why not introduce this sport at a young age so they can see, feel, and experience the benefits.

Getting a bike a little bit each day actually helps you to get a better, deeper night's sleep.

In addition, stress hormones that thwart regenerative, deep sleep are reduced with a 20-30 minute cycle.

These resources will improve our future cycling team to join cycling team, compete, and ride with BPMS 150.
