My Students

My students come into Physical Education Class to not think about what else is going on in their lives. I teach at an alternative school and most of my students work, provide for their families, or just want to graduate! I am fresh out of college and it is hard for me to properly teach them without the amount of equipment.

A lot of my students find Physical Education as on outlet to life and their frustrations.

I want the students to want to come into the class and particiapte and without the proper equipment, that is hard for myself.

My Project

This project will allow me to provide a quality Physical Education program to my students! My students need more variety in the gym and I want to introduce non-traditional sports in class. I have selected the basic equipment to get myself started and help my students become for active.

Particiapting in Physical Education is important for students and to get their proper amount of exercise every day.

This equipment will help my students explore themselves and introduce them to new and older sports. Physical Education is an outlet to my students and they would enjoy my class so much more if I had the proper equipment!
