My Students

My 20 students on my basketball team are incredible students who truly enjoy coming to school on a daily basis. My school is in an urban area in one of the poorest cities in America. It breaks my heart that so many of these fantastic students come to school to do their best, and we often have limited access to many classroom necessities, as well as physical education equipment and uniforms.

My dynamic team enters the gym, after school, on a daily basis, eager to learn the game of basketball.

We are an extremely active group of students who deserve every opportunity in the world possible. I want to make this wish come true for my students/athletes.

We are located in an urban area of New Jersey which has been described by the media as "the poorest city in the US" and "the most dangerous city in America." A full 96% of our students are classified as "economically disadvantaged," and 16% have special needs.

My Project

Our school recently started a basketball program at our awesome school, with 20 eager boys who are interested in learning the game in which they love to to play at their local playgrounds. These incredible children came to administration, and asked if they could form a team, and play against other schools. Naturally we said yes!! These boys are driven to succeed, and many are very limited to outside school activities, so this program will enhance their love of sports, and get them engaged in after school activities. Many wish to play in high school and college, so we believe this is the first step to help them reach their goals.
