My Students

Here at our elementary school, we are a title I School in Texas. Our school neighborhood and students were greatly affected by Hurricane Harvey. We have created a sports program to give students an escape that includes soccer and basketball. These students are learning life skills through sports that will take them throughout life and help them become great citizens. Most of these students come from broken homes and can't afford to play on a organized sports team outside of school due to the high fees that are included. These students look forward to competing on game days and against each other at practice so they can free themselves and enjoy freeing their mind through sports.

My Project

This project would significantly help my students learn the importance of safety in Physical Education. In the end, they will be more knowledgeable about injuries as well as how to prevent them while taking precautions when it comes to being safe at Physical Education. They will be empowered to take the skills and knowledge as an individual to improve their overall safety. We do not have a indoor gym so 99% of our activities require us to use a hard concrete pavement area or a concrete track. During these times students sometimes get injuries by falling and hurting knee, elbow, or bumping into each other causing minor injuries. By having a mini fridge with freezer compartment students now have easy access to get an ice pack or be treated with first aid kit without having to stop class and send students inside to the nurses office. Having these items outside where P.E is held will take a huge burden off the hands of our GREAT nurse.
