My Students

This is my first year as the After School Coordinator at a low income/ high poverty Kindergarten 8th grade school. As heartbreaking as it is, most of my students are faced with many challenges in and out of the classroom.

My Project

We are preparing to start the spring semester of our after school program and the students are very excited to take a tap dance class for the first time! The students have been eager to sign up to take this class, but they are in need of tap shoes!

I would love for each student to each be able to have their own pair of tap shoes to keep all students safe and help reduce the spread of germs.

These shoes will give them the confidence boost they need to help them improve in class and give them the real dance studio experience they might not get otherwise. Students that regularly attend After School Academy have shown academic, social and emotional growth.
