My Students

I teach in an alternative school for students who need more support both behaviorally and academically. Many times the academic deficits trigger behavioral problems or are a result of behavioral problems. Our school works to find alternative education methods for our students. We have smaller classes sizes and constant team meetings (teachers, parents, and students) to support our students in whatever way we possible can. We refer to our school as the emergency room. Here we are with a child who needs immediate academic and behavioral assistance and we have to run the "tests" to see what exactly the student needs.

Since we are such a small school, we aren't given a large amount of money from our school district to buy all the supplies that could thoroughly enhance the academic experience for our students.

With your help, we can build classrooms that have all the tools necessary to properly educate our children.

My Project

My students are extremely motivated by sports! Our basketballs and footballs have been loved a little too much and are starting to show that they are old. Our students fight over the "good" basketballs and footballs because out of our equipment, there may be only 5 basketballs and footballs that are viable.

We recently started a school basketball team and our students could use some new equipment to reward the positive efforts that our students are demonstrating.

We utilize the basketball team as positive reward for student behavior and also use free time to play ball during lunch recess for students that are positively behaving throughout the school day. We are requesting new footballs and basketballs for our students.
