My Students

Some of my students are brand new to the world of athletics and physical education. They are introduced to all kinds of activities such as Soccer, Softball, Football, Baseball and even Ultimate Frisbee. I love to yell "atta baby" when I see a student enjoy success on the blacktop or on the field.

We are a medium size school of 1200 students.

This is our first year that our school now serves sixth through twelvth grade. The addition of our middle school students has been wonderful. Our School is an inclusive learning community engaging and empowering all students to actively take ownership of their education and future.

My Project

Our school sits rights next to the San Francisco Bay and the salt water air and dampness play havoc on some of our equipment which has to be left outside. We need a replacement net for our portable Batting Cage and a replacement vinyl skirt for our portable Batting Cage. Our portable cage is used by all of our Physical Education classes and some of our Athletic teams. Our students will be able to use this improved portable net in many of our activites. Activities include Football, Softball, Soccer and Baseball.

This donation will improve the quality of my teaching.

It will give me more time to work with my students since or they will not have to run and chase balls that have been kicked or hit. It will give me more time to work individually with students on certain drills and improve their game which they can take with then to the next level. Bottom line is that it will be more fun for my students.
