My Students

My school is located in the Bronx, where students are diverse and come from different backgrounds. Teaching basketball for grades 3-5, I've come across students with all types of skill sets. There are students that have little to no skills because they don't have the resources to master the skills while there are other students who look as if they have a future in professional sports. Regardless of their skill set they all share the same passion in loving the game of basketball. My student-athletes are always coming up to me ensuring that we have practice because they want to play and learn so bad.

No matter what my students' skill levels are my goal is to teach my students how to live a long healthy life through physical activity.

"Intelligence and skill can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong.”

My Project

Donations to this project will mean a lot to the student-athletes. This is the 1st year where we have the opportunity to form a basketball team and play other schools across the Bronx. As students are excited for this moment, understandably so, we do not have all of the equipment to support them. Your donations will be contributing to every student having a jersey for practice and games.

Having the whole team wearing the same jersey will create camaraderie amongst the students.

Students will be extra motivated to play harder because they will all be representing the same thing; Basketball. They will all have family, friends, and teachers watching and supporting them.
