My Students

My school is grades K-8th. The students that I teach are elementary grade 3. We are an inner city charter school. Many of our students are below the poverty level and receive free lunch. We are classified as a Title I school. Many of our students only exposure to technology is during school hours.

My students are eager to learn and do so more easily with the right tools.

They love to engage in hands-on learning when possible, but they also have to be prepared for life.

My Project

The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my athletes/students will help them learn and develop different aspects about the game of basketball.

These materials will help them build on their individual/team game and instill confidence through applied practice.

The D Man basketball mannequins will be use to help show defenses on the court and also to help reinforce having a high arc on their jump shots. The resistance 360 coil bands will be used in our explosive workouts. Using these materials in practice makes my students more ready for game like situations and that will give them confidence in their abilities.
