My Students

Coming from a town that was devastatingly hurt by Hurricane Harvey, the kids look to sports as a safe haven to come together as a community.

Many parks were damaged so the means to go out and play now comes on the shoulders of the school.

Looking forward to PE brightens the smiles on the kid's faces when they step onto campus each day.

I enjoy being the safe haven of sports every day for the kids. These kids are the type of kids that love playing sports and PE games and do it with a smile on their faces and always encourage one another no matter what we are playing that day.

My Project

After the community took a damaging hit with Hurricane Harvey, one thing that got taken away from the kids was their way to express themselves with sports. The way to give that back to them was through physical education at the school each and every day.

Giving the kids a sense of hope and success through sports is what will get them through the hard times they are still facing today.

Being able to play basketball, football, soccer, and many other sports and games like those brings the kids together as one school and you see how they quickly forget what they went through with losing their homes and belongings during that tragic event.

Seeing the kids light up each day when they get to come to my class and play the sports they love to play. It gives them their passion back in a way you can never imagine. I take pride in not only teaching them the sports but playing the games with them as well to get them excited once again about life. These kids will continue to grow and with sports you might just see some of them make a name for themselves in sport all thanks to one PE class they had during school.
