My Students

My students attend high school at a title 1 school in a rural community. The school recently merged with another school because the district struggles financially and was unable to keep both schools opened.In addition, I am the biology and anatomy teacher to 200 plus students each year along with the schools cheer-leading coach.

Due to the financial struggles of my school, we do not have the proper funds for extracurricular activities.

My cheerleaders are striving daily to create an environment that produces team building and spirit within our school. I plan to write projects in order to level the playing field and give my students the best opportunities possible. We have a lot of parental support and students are motivated to learn and better themselves for the future.

My Project

My students are in need of a set of practice and competition shoes to use for cheerleading events throughout the year. Our school is a Title I school where our funding is extremely limited.

Your donations will help to support our cheerleaders in competitions, practice, and camp.

The cheerleaders will use these shoes not only to practice in but also for cheer camp, competitions, and performances this year. Many of my cheerleaders come from low income families and are unable to supply basic needs while on the team such as practice shoes. These shoes will be used throughout the year by all team members.
