My Students

I have the privilege of working with some of the most hardworking students I have ever met. They might come from low-income, high-poverty areas, but their thirst for knowledge is inspiring. Our school is Title I where the majority of students get free or reduced-price lunch. Even though every student understands where they come from, when they come to my class, they are like every other child in the world. They love music, sports, TV, movies, and video games. They are smart, funny, creative, happy, and motivated young people.

My Project

All of our students want to learn and play during their physical education classes. But sadly, our students have trouble hearing us due to the acoustics in the gymnasium. The blowers are loud and the echo radiates up towards the first floor.

With these speakers, our students will be able to listen to music during their workouts, hear the instruction being given during class, and use them during their incentive times.

Music is a great way to motivate students to work out. Our goal is to educate students on how to become healthy for a lifetime. If we can motivate them to do one push up with music, it's better than nothing. Also, when we see that lightbulb click, we can gradually and consistently instill the power and confidence that exercise brings to their lives.
