My Students

We are a STEM-based charter school in Naples, Florida with 74% free or reduced-price lunches. The families we serve really want what is best for their kids and trust me as their teacher to help make those decisions. The students in my classroom are very loving and caring individuals.

"It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves, that will make them successful human beings." ~Ann Landers

My students are passionate, eccentric, beautiful, intelligent, and all-around amazing. When you look into their eyes, you know that they are eager to consume knowledge. These students appreciate each and every day that they spend in the classroom because they know that they are going to use their minds in the most creative and innovative ways possible.

My Project

My students need Spalding NeverFlat Soft Grip Indoor/Outdoor Basketballs, and a BSN sports ball cart to properly store them after practice. We need a unlimited potential mesh equipment bag to carry balls to and from games.

We need nylon mesh scrimmage jerseys for practices.

To help us get in shape and ready to compete with other schools we need Basketball Scoreboard, BlueDot Trading Cones, a Coach's Whistle. For explaining plays to the team we need a Murray Sporting Goods Dry-Erase Double Sided Basketball Coaches Clipboard. To help make practices run smoothly we need a Spalding Court Marking System, and SKLZ Kick-Out 360 Degree Ball Return, and SKLZ Shot Spotz - Basketball Training Markers, to run all those skills and drills to prepare for our games.
