My Students

Our student athletes are dual-immersion learners. They learn two languages through the content areas. English-dominant and Spanish-dominant students learn both languages not only from me but from each other. During class, communication can break down due to the difference in language abilities, but on the soccer field, that disappears. Athleticism on the field is a language that they all understand.

We are a high-poverty, urban middle school that specializes in the arts, but our students need more opportunities to excel in athletics.

Our soccer team is mixed gender, grades 6-8, and includes students from all ability levels, including students who have never played before and students who are physically challenged.

My Project

Due to funding cuts, our school supply budget - for academics and sports - is $0 for the second year in a row. While we were able to purchase low-cost soccer uniforms with another grant, we could not afford to buy long-sleeved goalkeeper jerseys.

The long-sleeved goalkeeper jerseys serve two purposes: to clearly indicate who the goalkeeper is and to help keep the goalkeeper warm, which is especially needed in the chilly Wisconsin soccer season.

Since our athletes rotate positions during the game in order to give everyone an opportunity to play, the team needs 4 goalkeeper shirts to accommodate sizes small to extra large.
