My Students

My students are hungry for engaging, relevant, interactive opportunities to connect with content that has real-life application and purpose. Our biggest challenge is getting funding to take students outside of their neighborhood and engaged in the rest of the world to broaden their perspectives. We have limited resources and limited access to networks that push students to not only be developed in the classroom and on the court, but in life.

These students are real-life examples of a broken system that has failed to equip city schools with proper materials and resources.

This year, that will change. Our school is 99.2% low income with 100% qualifying for free and reduced-price lunch. Last year, we had 58% of our students in grades 3-8 on track for achieving success in high school and I take full ownership of this. It's time for a change. It is time that these students are equipped for success. Research proves that students engaged in extra-curricular activities do better with their studies and their abilities to develop time management. Join me in supporting these children with resources and materials to not only support their ability to think and learn differently but to ultimately change these statistics.

My Project

Throughout the year students are constantly engaged in different types of materials. We are teaching skill after skill and trying our best to engage them in a way that is fun and exciting. With the Quizmo Games, we are able to have fun while working on the content at hand. I am very excited to challenge students in small groups with the activities and see how they can flourish in their learning.

Another thing that you will see in our cart is snacks.

We are constantly trying to find new ways to incentivize our students in both their learning and their behavior. I have asked for a handful of snacks that we can use in their Dojo store for good behavior but also as prizes in an educational competition.
