My Students

My students are bright, inquisitive learners located in a densely populated city. Our middle school is the size of some high schools with a student population of over 1,600 students. Our students receive 100% free breakfast and lunch due to economic challenges.

My Project

I am focused on teaching my students how to be healthy and how to use the gym equipment correctly. They really enjoy on Fridays when we reserve the weight room to learn how to use the weights correctly and how to do circuit work.

Part of the teaching the students how to use the weight room correctly is teaching them how to keep everything clean and hygienic.

By receiving these gym towels, I will be able to give students towels to properly wipe off the equipment after their use. In addition, the antibacterial wipes will help ensure we all stay healthy by wiping off all gym equipment after each period.
