My Students

My students come from several small communities in rural Utah. We sometimes joke that the nearest Wal-Mart is fifty miles away.

Most of the students come from families who are blue-collar workers and farmers.

With this background, the students are hard-working and eager to learn. Unfortunately, with that, more than half of our students are from low-income households. However, they do not let that define them.

These students are focused, young people. Many strive for academic excellence in all their courses of study and simply need the opportunity to succeed.

My Project

Although I love doing activities in my physical education classes that are not necessarily in the main stream of activities, I still do units in basketball.

I am requesting six new basketballs.

The basketballs that we currently have, most have been there since before I started working at my school (18 years), are pretty well beat up and falling apart.

Having new basketballs for my PE classes would be amazing! Right now, my students fight over the best basketballs, which are still at least over ten years old. It would be amazing to provide my classes with new basketballs so we can show them the love our previous basketballs have seen.
