My Students

We are a small Title I public school in the inner city serving 700 students from grades 6-12. We want to prepare our students for the world in and outside of the classroom. We provide them with a rigorous curriculum and an array of opportunities, from STEM programs, to technology, to athletics and travel.

Team sports allow our students to learn valuable lessons.

We are fortunate enough to provide our students with a strong baseball and softball program, however, we don't have the facilities at our school to give our student-athletes the proper practice and training that they need so we need to be creative. We want our students to have access to as many opportunities to utilize proper facilities as possible.

My Project

Do you remember what it was like to be on a sports team? Do you remember the joy of being able to have practice on your own field or court? There is nothing like having the proper facilities to train and be ready for the season. My students don't have that luxury.

This Spring Training trip is an opportunity for my students to have access to proper fields and facilities to prepare them for the season.

Living in the inner city of theNorth East, our school doesn't have the luxury of having fields or a gym. The weather also makes it hard to properly train for the upcoming baseball and softball seasons. This Spring Training trip will allow my student-athletes to train at world-class facilities, compete against other schools and allow them to train properly.
