My Students

The students of my school live in a high poverty part of Missouri. Some people would say the size and income level of our school would make too great of a negative impact for anything good to happen. Our students have proven time and time again that they can achieve way beyond what anyone expects of them.

I believe the main reason for the student's achievement is the family-like closeness they experience while attending here.

I have found, especially with my students, people with the greatest character often come from places where you would least expect it.

My Project

Cross country is a sport all about endurance. Running multiple miles a day is a great way to gain endurance. Runners need to be well-rounded athletes as well. The hurdles will help each student strengthen their ankles and better their form. I have the pleasure of being the head coach of both high school teams and middle school teams. To notify students what is going on I need a good whistle, like the one I am asking for.

It is my job as a coach to not only mold students as runners but as athletes.

Agility ladder workouts are another way my students can improve their footwork for cross country. All of the equipment will help the team be as competitive as we can be.
