My Students

We are one big happy family. Our Title I school is home to a large population (92%) of English language learners. My students face many challenges while living in a new country and attempting to learn a new language.

My three classes are filled with 75 eager students who love working together to complete various tasks.

My goal is to make their transition as smooth as possible in hopes of preparing them for great achievement. They are capable of greatness and will achieve.

My Project

Our soccer team needs a ball storage and shelving units to keep our equipment safe and secure. Students lose equipment by leaving it out and other classes love to use/borrow our equipment. While we don't mind sharing, there has to be a safe place to keep up with the equipment.

The shelving units will keep all of the materials well organized, while all of the balls will be kept secured and locked in the ball storage container.

Taking care of the soccer equipment is our #1 in order to have a successful season. Thank you for help my students be successful. Thanks for visiting our project.
