My Students

Our school has a diverse population of students. This school is a Title I school where all of the students at my school receive free or reduced-price lunch. Our school also receives school-wide Title I funding. Many students come from low-income families or nontraditional homes. Students at my school are inquisitive, compassionate, and creative.

My students cherish their opportunities for learning because they want to become successful one day.

I believe it is my job to not only teach the students the curriculum but also to teach them to love learning. In my classroom, I encourage students to develop social skills, build a community, and engage in their learning. I know that what my students learn now will impact them for a lifetime.

My Project

Help me give my students on the soccer team new equipment for the upcoming season. Last year the students grew tremendously on their ability to play on a team and against other schools. Now it is time to start working on the basic skills such as ball touches and agility training through games.

The players will be able to build their stamina, agility, and confidence with new equipment.

We will use the new soccer balls during practice and games along with a bag to make storing and carrying them easier. The team will need to practice their speed and foot touches using the agility ladder and agility hoops. Our goalie will even get a pair of gloves to help with handling the ball!
