My Students

I teach in a Title I high school in the North Huntsville (AL) area. Our students are outstanding. They are caring, intelligent, funny, hard working and amazingly talented. Many have overcome (and continue to overcome) many obstacles to be successful and productive students.

The BEST attributes of my diverse class of students are revealed when I see them playing Ping Pong.

They teach each other, hold each other accountable and encourage each other as they play. I enjoy building relationships with them and watching them foster new relationships with each other.

My Project

Our Ping Pong club was started last year and we had more students to join than I expected. With only 2 tables, many students did not get the opportunity to play and improve as much as I would have liked. With the numbers I'm expecting this year and limited amount of time to play, 2 tables will not meet our growing club needs.

Therefore, two additional tables will be a great benefit to our club, especially those that are building a love for Table Tennis and will finally have the opportunity to play more consistently.

I have seen an increase in confidence in those students who improved their game. I've also seen some great relationships form from students competing against each other. As their club sponsor, I have also been able to build relationships with students through an activity that that I enjoy teaching.
