I am a Physical Education teacher in rural North Carolina. I work at two elementary schools with a terrific group of students. I enjoy going to work everyday! Although I am an avid tennis player, my secret passion is kickball. I have even started teaching my second graders the basics for the game so that I will have a few more years to enjoy watching them play the game! Kickball is one of the few games that can be modified to play anywhere, anytime--all that is needed is a good kickball! Because of the proximity of a water-filled ditch to the gymnasium, two of my best kickballs floated away. I need 10 good kickballs and a set of sturdy outdoor and indoor bases so that my kickball games will be as much fun for the students as they were for me when I was in elementary school. I am also going to propose a kickball tournament for the upper elementary students at the end of the school year. I want to give a trophy to the class who wins the kickball tournament. It's the bottom of the ninth...help my students have an enjoyable time during the kickball unit and fund this proposal!
