My Students

We are a Title 1 school, most of our scholars come from disadvantaged families and have special needs. We are a school with minimum resources, and our scholars work hard each and everyday to achieve success. My students are one of a kind, I wouldn't even say that, they are extraordinary! They love coming to my class and I love seeing their happy smiles as well. Teaching my students about living a healthy life style through fitness and health is very important. I truly believe it also helps students academically in the classroom.

My Project

I am working with a group of talented boys. As a coach I often have to use my own resources to makes sure everyone on my team has the things they need to train and practice. Uniforms are a requirement in practice and on game day. We are a team and I want us to look and play as a team. I need socks for my team.

Team unity is important.

I would appreciate any support. I want to focus on coaching and training. Last, it is important for me to not turn away boys because of the lack of finances.
