My Students

My students defy the odds. We are located in the South Bronx, within one of the poorest districts in the country. The poverty and violence rates in our neighborhood are sky-high compared to the rest of the state. Many of our students come to school because it is a safe place where they receive basic human needs.

Statistically, our students are not supposed to succeed, but if you took one step into our classroom you can see that they are not another statistic.

These kids are motivated and love to learn! Unfortunately, our school is a tad bit outdated. We are still using chalkboards and poster paper to write down notes. We are using textbooks and outdated worksheets in our classrooms. I want to make school fun, live, and interactive. Our classrooms need to be revamped, and our kids need more programs to keep them out of harm's way outside of school. We need programs in sports, science, journalism, math, and music. We need to balance out the academics with the social aspects of life and help cultivate active exemplary citizens.

My Project

Softball season is just a few weeks away and we need a way to motivate the fans.l What better than a good old mascot? We have several kids in the middle school that want to participate in softball but don't know how. It's time to give them jobs: equipment managers, the fliers group, and, of course, a mascot!

We need an eagle mask and bird slippers for our home grown costume.

Our mascot will have its very own jersey and number. But that's not all, our mascot has to be fly, as well. We're hooking her up with piped pants, camo sleeves and camo socks to match our uniform. We're also giving her some batting gloves, just in case we need her to step in for an at bat. Hopefully having a mascot will not only keep the fans engaged but also pump up the girls to play harder.
