My Students

I teach Physical education at a 6th year charter school in Abilene, Tx. Currently we are K-10 and adding a grade every year. Our students come from all over the Abilene area and surrounding towns. A lot of the kids haven't had the access to any organized sports. What I want for these kids is a way for them to learn about different sports and gain a interest of being physically fit. I think showing these kids that exercising can be fun will help promote active lifestyles.

My Project

Currently we don't have enough equipment for every kid to utilize due to the extra precautions of Covid. In our Physical Education classes we perform a lot of functional fitness stations and before Covid it wasn't a problem with the students sharing equipment. Without the extra equipment it's harder to allow the students to use the equipment in a safe manner. These extra medicine balls will definitely help me allow the kids to still be able use equipment. My students are noticeably more engaged during PE class and less disruptive of their peers when they are utilizing equipment.
