My Students

I have the privilege of teaching physical education and direct our student council at a school that is pre -k through 8th grade. Since I see all of them every week, I really get to see them grow up through the years.

Our school is the meaning of diverse.

We speak over 35 languages and come from over 28 countries. It is wonderful to see this many cultures come together to create a wonderful learning environment. Students are very tolerant of different cultures and enjoy interacting with each other.

My Project

Our student council is in charge of supporting our school climate. We do activities to reward students who show the proper behavior and other things such as good attendance.

Incentives are an important way to help students become the best they can be.

All of these supplies will be used on activities for deserving students. These activities include dances, awards ceremonies, field days and other events.

By donating to our project you will help students become better prepared for their education. Allowing students to participate in these type of activities reinforces the types of behaviors teachers expect in the classroom. These behaviors lead to better attention spans and in turn leads to greater student success.
