My Students

My students are great students, they all have unique talents, however just about all of them come from low socio-economic backgrounds. Some of my students live in shelters and all qualify for free lunch. Our schools is a title I school, located in Manhattan. My students are from a variety of backgrounds, Hispanic, African american, Asian, Muslim and white.

The student's in my school are big into sports, and love learning how to play sports they won't normally play.

Some of my students suffer from low self esteem and I'm try to raise their self esteem levels any way I can. All students should have access to materials that can help with that and that is what I am trying to do.

My Project

My students love learning to play new sports as much as I love to teach them. Many of my students have been asking to learn tennis during class, we have rackets and balls but no nets to teach them the right way to play. Not everyone is good at contact or team sports and tennis is good for students who like individual sports and I would love to help them learn to love tennis and build up the self esteem in some of my students, who shy away from playing when it involves working on a team or in a group. These champion sports 14 port-a-net sets will allow me to help those students by giving them the tools to raise their self esteem.
