My Students

My students have tons of untapped potential! They are very energetic daily, and we strive to focus on hands-on activities that are relevant and rigorous. The students are willing to try challenging concepts in class every day, but it is vital that they also receive some outdoor activities as well.

Our school is a school that is forgiving and offers 2nd chances to students.

We strive to empower students daily through tough love! We must educate them on life expectations, which are NO Exceptions and NO Excuses!

My Project

My students do not have the opportunity to participate in any outside or indoor physical education activities since we are limited on space and resources. We want to purchase a basketball goal and balls for students to participate in basketball. Students will have the opportunity to participate in physical activities based on PBIS incentives. We do not have a gym or multi-purpose room for students to have PE classes.

Research suggests that students who participate in physical activities are less likely to experience future health issues as an adult.

Physical activities will provide a positive outlet for my students to work off built-up energy created through positive interactions.
