My Students

My students are athletically talented, eager to learn new things, and always asking questions. Our school has a special education program which services kids at every grade level.

We also have an English Language Learners other than Spanish program (ELLs) where we see PreK-5th grade children coming to our school from China, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Korea, Russia, and many other countries.

We are a close-knit, high-performing school that has had success in integrating all these different types of learners into general education classrooms, library, art, music, and physical education. (That's me!)

My Project

I remember being an elementary school physical education student and having access to great gymnastics equipment. Balance beams, tumbling aids, and mats. Wow, was it fun! And as someone who is tall, my only exposure to gymnastics as a child was in a physical education setting.

Now as a physical education teacher, I would like to give my students the same opportunities that I had.

For the gymnastics and stunting unit, the only equipment I currently have are mats. I am asking for tumbling wedges because they will assist children in novice skills like forward rolls, backward rolls, cartwheels, and roundoffs. Wedges can also help kids who are past the novice level with backbends and walkovers.

It is my personal goal to elevate the units of instruction that I teach and it's time for this one to get an upgrade! My students and I thank you for your consideration.
