My Students

The majority of my students are from low-income families in Flint, MI. My students do not have the resources available to them that so many students around the country take for granted. Despite a lack of resources, many of the students come to school and try their best to get the education they deserve.

When many of my students are dealing with so many negative things in their lives, my goal is to give them the best possible educational experience so they are inspired to continue working hard towards improving their lives through education.

My Project

I often hold "Open Gym" events after school to give my students an opportunity to relax with their friends, play sports, and get some good physical activity. The equipment we have available for the gym is very sub par. I would like to give my students some quality footballs and jump ropes to use as they work on their sports skills with their friends.

Having quality equipment to practice with can also boost students confidence and enthusiasm for the sport.

Through generous donors from Donors Choose, I have been able to give my students some nice basketballs for their open gym times. I am trying to give them some footballs and jump ropes as well. These open gym times help my students to not only build their social skills and friendships, but also help make sure they are getting good physical activity in a safe environment. Many of my students do not have access to someplace to get good physical activity in a safe environment and my goal is to not only give them that safe environment, but also quality equipment to practice for their sport of choice.
