Help me give my students a basketball hoop, water and basketballs to help them prepare for the basketball season.
My class is a 12:1:1 classroom. We currently have 10 students, 1 paraprofessional, 1 medical paraprofessional, and 1 classroom teacher. We represent Haiti, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Africa. My students are an excited group with a range of disabilities. We have students with ADD, ADHD, Aspergers, Epilepsy, Emotional Disability, English Language Learners, Speech and Language Impairments and those who have Learning Disability. In this classroom, we don’t let these disabilities limit our potential to reach our goals. This is a self-contained bridge class for 7th and 8th graders.
My class has faced so many personal adversities that should have discouraged them from having high expectations like, losing one or both parents, medical setbacks, violence, homelessness, living in shelters and bullying, but they push through because they want to be change agents.
Some of my students will be first-generation high school students in their family and others first-generation high school graduates. This classroom allows the students to learn without restrictions and to see themselves in a positive light.
Our baseball team is a group of individuals from elementary and middle school that always play with heart. They are amazing students; have potential to be great players but don't have a space to use for practice. Our school shares location with an after-school program so our basketball team doesn't have access to the gym for the much-needed practice.
By donating to this project you will be providing our students with mobile equipment that they can use to practice with after school; with the portable basketball hoop, basketballs and water; our team will be ready to get to all-star status.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
