My Students

As a first year Physical Education teacher I want to bring all kinds of sports and recreation to our 800+students. I want to educate them on a variety of sports, fitness activities as well as nutrition. As a PE teacher I am able to build retionships with my students, show them that their opinions matter and that I care about their well being.

My students absolutely LOVE BASKETBALL!

I aim to give my students every advantage in Physical Education and open their minds to all kinds of sports.

My Project

A durable basketball cart will allow our school to store our basketballs safely. By storing our basketballs in this cart will teach our students that placing them on a rack is a safer option than placing them on the floor and against the wall. I aim to teach my students that safety in my classroom is super important. If we are all safe everyone will have fun!

Our students LOVE basketball!

Basketball is a great sport for cooperation and team play. It is also a great sport to engage hand eye coordination.

By donating to our project we will be able to safely use our basketballs more often.
