My Students

I teach a wide variety of students in physical education. Students range in grades from kindergarten through sixth. Our school is very diverse with more than 20 different languages spoken and children coming from over 30 countries. We pride ourselves on teaching these students how to be successful members of society.

My students love interacting in sports and games.

Teaching all levels of students is challenging without equipment. My students are eager to get their bodies moving and practice their athletic skills.

My Project

By providing my students with one ball we can play numerous games and use whole body exercises to be active and fit in physical education. This style of ball is versatile and will provide all of my students a fair opportunity to play in many different games and activities. Omnikin balls are lightweight and protected by a colorful nylon outer cover to prevent the ball from popping.

Students will beg to play games with this ball.

Traditional games may use this ball to add a higher level of play and participation. Substituting a normal ball to this Omnikin ball will change the game ten fold!
