My Students

Students at my school are energetic, creative, and hands on learners. Our school is located in a large school district in North Omaha where we have students of diverse backgrounds.

Uniforms and sports equipment will help our students be able to effectively take part in sports at our school which in turn will help them to channel their energy into positive activities and learn positive social skills with their peers.

Sports teach children so many life long skills including self awareness problem solving skills, self regulation, and so many others. Our students need the proper equipment in order to have these sports teams.

My students are full of love, creativity, and curiosity. They love to learn and love to love! They inspire me each and every day.

My Project

Our school is in need of uniforms for our soccer, basketball, football, and volleyball teams as we currently all share one set of very old and worn basketball jerseys. Our students are also in need of proper soccer equipment such as goals, cones, and shin guards so that they can have a fair chance at competing with other schools in the district. We currently do not have these materials. As the soccer coach and school counselor of the building, I want my students to feel proud, excited, and apart of something in our school.

Research shows that school culture and a feeling of belonging increases student attendance and decreases student behavior including bullying.

Sports are a magnificent way to offer that to students and increase our positive school culture.
