My Students

Despite being a Title I school and having a large population of low income, at-risk, and limited English proficient students, our school has managed to maintain itself among the highest performing schools in our large urban school district, and we consistently earn recognition for our accomplishments from the state.

My students are all hardworking, energetic, and eager, and they enjoy being a part of our baseball program.

Our program is in the beginning stages and we are in need of some essential equipment to build a strong foundation.

My Project

We are a Title I school with a large population of low income, at-risk, and limited English proficient students. Despite these hurdles, our school has managed to maintain itself among the highest performing schools in our large urban school district. We consistently earn recognition for our accomplishments from the state.

My baseball players are all learning the fundamentals of baseball and we are working towards creating a winning team.

We need a pitching machine to help us during our practices after school.

Our school has been hit with budget cuts that have drastically affected our sports program. This has made it very difficult to support and grow our program.
