My Students

As a Physical Education teacher in a low income/high poverty urban city, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges, I am trying to provide my students with new and creative learning experiences. Many students are bilingual, some speaking only Spanish but learning English.

Students come into school excited to learn and explore.

The students look forward to what new games and activities will be presented to them during Physical Education. They are motivated to move with music, and visuals, and having fun in PE!

My Project

For 20 minutes a day, students get the chance to enjoy recess! During recess, the student have a couple basketball courts to play on but currently with limited equipment. This project for recess equipment would allow all classes to enjoy a variety of equipment to play freely with their classmates. The equipment would bring lots of smiles to the students faces especially during a basketball game, kickball, a game of Jump Rope, or throwing a ball with a friend. The cart would be used to store all the equipment and for easy transport. The students would love to have some brand new pieces of equipment to play with!
