My Students

I teach at a Title I school in Livingston, Alabama where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Many of my players are faced with many obstacles that children at their age shouldn’t have to endure. The players still keep a smile on their faces no matter what life has thrown at them this year. They are becoming leaders around the school and having an impact on the other players around campus. Day after day I demand more from them in the classroom but I have yet to find a challenge they have yet to overcome.

My Project

I feel like the basketball practice jerseys will allow my students to keep playing basketball without worrying about other things. The practice jerseys will allow my players to train like other kids at other schools. A lot of the students' school work get ruined from the sweat of their clothes. The basketball practice jerseys will allow my players to keep playing and focus on the game. The school has seen how basketball has turned around the culture of the entire 7th and 8th grade class. I know basketball will save the lives of some of these girls. Basketball can teach them different values such as obedience, discipline, and responsibilities.
