My students need to release their negative energy through cardio exercises to be able to focus in their daily academic activities by using an engaging and innovative free standing speed bag.

My Students

Our students are always fully charged and ready to learn and play. Our students are hands on learners and love to try new sports and activities that they have never been exposed to.

Our school is a high needs, low poverty area and even with those obstacles that our students face day to day they come to school to learn and play.

Our students like to take advantage of every opportunity that comes to them and they are very grateful for them.

My Project

As educators, it is our responsibility to try to reach out to every student in a positive way. Physical education is an evolving subject that is trying to give students healthy, fun and engaging activities that will stay in their lives for ever.

Our students love to learn new and exiting activities that they have never been exposed to in their lives.

The free standing speed bags will be used as stations to a cardiovascular unit that is in process of coming a reality. The kids will be excited and ecstatic about having equipment that is usually used in a fitness gym.
