My Students

Physical activity and movement is an essential part of a student's school day. My gym is lively, noisy, focused, and engaging for every student that enters. It is my goal for students to end the year understanding the importance of living an active, healthy life. I also want my students to appreciate the diverse tools they have used to learn about movement, fitness, and wellness.

My students are from north Baltimore City and range from Pre-Kindergarten to 8th grade.

More than half of my students come from low income households. Most of our families have limited access to quality athletic programs and resources. This will be my fourth year with these students and I want to provide them with the most engaging program possible. They are eager to learn and would benefit from a more supplied program.

My Project

We will use the Drum Fit DVD, online resources, and self-created routines to engage students in fun-drumming fitness activities. We will use Drum fit music to explore world dances, for example, Maculele.

Incorporating Drum Fit activities and lessons into my curriculum will help me engage my students in muscular and aerobic fitness activities that are designed to be fun and heart pounding.

Having Drum fit equipment at Hampden EMS will also encourage many students to participate in after school fitness sessions to improve their health.

I see my students once a week, so physical education time is severely limited. With this equipment, I hope to make the most of every second I have with them by providing quality instruction. This means giving my students as many opportunities to be active and engaged during the time I have with them.
