My Students

Childhood obesity is a growing problem in this country and as a Physical Educator it is my job to come up with new ways to keep students excited about being active. The equipment I have requested will help me do just that.

For my students school is their safe place.

Here they grow, learn and develop. As a Physical Educator it is my job to teach them how to be healthy and active and expose them to as many resources as possible to make that happen. The Physical Education world is always changing and aims to reach every child not just the ones gifted in sports. The culture of the community my students live in is not one that supports healthy life choices however it is my hope that with my influence that can change.

My Project

The equipment I have requested for my students will help replace worn out equipment and enhance my Physical Education classes to inspire more students and give the students a fresh, new and exciting view on being active. With your help in purchasing the team walkers my students will be able to do team building activities which will strengthen social and emotional skills. The new soccer balls will replace old torn balls and the jump ropes are needed with the increase in my class sizes. The equipment will also give me as a teacher the chance to vary my lessons and introduce skills to all ability levels.

It has always been my passion to inspire students to lead a healthy active lifestyle from the lessons taught in my classroom, with your help that can become a reality.

My students don't have a lot of resources or people in their corner but in our school they feel safe to grow and I want to give them all the tools they need to do so.
