My Students

The best part about my students is their eagerness to succeed. They want to push themselves and do the best they can in any activity we do in class. My students are new to physical education and athletics but still have a drive to change their lives through physical activity.

My students are compassionate for a new level of excellence.

In class they push themselves to attempt new skills no matter the obstacles ahead. My students have the potential to be successful in athletics.

My Project

Track and field is a great sport for young student athletes to find themselves physically. A student can be fast, tall, short, or strong to compete in track and field. This year we are starting a track and field program and are in need of certain implements for the field aspect of the sport, specifically boys shot puts and both girls and boys discuss.

These track and field implements will help our young student athletes grow and develop in the sport of track and field.

Student athletes will be able to use this equipment to get stronger and be more competitive. The items on this list will also be used in physical education to help me broaden my ideas on different units during the course of the year.
