My Students

Many of our students enjoy the games and activities we are able to play. The students are very creative and enjoy exploring new things. I strive to make the students enjoy physical education as much as I do. If I can continue to keep a smile on my students while they learn, it will be a success.

The students at my school follow unique guidelines and expectations.

This leads to an overall positive experience with the entire school. The students are always eager to learn and come to PE. I try to use our minimal equipment to keep the classroom exciting and fun. If we were able to receive this equipment it would help make my curriculum more exciting. I love working with these kids and will do everything I can to make physical education, and physical activity, something the students value and enjoy.

My Project

I will be able to use this equipment with all of my grade levels. I will use this equipment to make an obstacle course, to explore personal space, to work on balance, etc. I would be able to use the equipment to lead relay races where students have to scoot across the for, hop back in their potato sack, climb the rocky boulders, and crawl through the gates. I would love to share these ideas and many other activities with my student.

I love my students and my goal is to create a safe, caring, positive, classroom environment.

I try to do anything for my students to continue to keep the students enthusiastic about PE. I know the students would be thrilled to receive this donation. They will surely be thankful and show their gratitude.
