Mrs. Johnson from West Jordan UT is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sweatin' in the Middle School

My Students

My students are amazing! Teaching at a low income school has given me such great insight into the lives of some incredible individuals.

Many of my students come from broken homes and have taken on some great responsibilities.

They take care of siblings, homes, and schoolwork all on their own. For some, it breaks them down. For others, it brings them to their full potential. I have seen some students give when they have little. I have also seen many struggle through issues that many would shriek under. But through it all, they show up and do what they can to succeed.

My Project

During our health class my students get the chance to make exercise videos and focus on the different areas of the body that we should pay attention to. It is always fun to see them getting active, creative, and having fun learning.

Students need supplies to help with their fitness videos.

They are often found lifting chairs and standing on one leg to demonstrate the elements of fitness. Which is great and resourceful but they need some real gym equipment to fully explore how to work out that part of their body. That is why I have requested weights, resistance bands and a Sit and reach. Can't wait to see their excitement when they see these resources.
