My Students

My students are active, inquisitive, and love to play soccer. They all work hard during our intramural soccer program which provides them with activities to promote the development of the whole individual, physically, socially, intellectually and emotionally.

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom, but despite the many challenges they face they look forward to learning & growing as students & athletes.

I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My Project

Through utilizing the Franklin 12x6 soccer goals in trainings and intramural athletic competitions our students will be encouraged to participate and showcase their athletic abilities. Team sports offer many social and physical benefits to our students. Intramural sports are a great way to introduce students to athletic competition in a safe and fun manner.

Our overall vision is to help students improve their self-esteem, experience the benefits of developing life long interpersonal skills, develop new sports and fitness skills and enjoy being physically active.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase our students soccer endeavors you will ultimately help to increase their academic performance achievements.
