My Students

I am privileged to teach exceptional students in sixth, seventh and eighth grade in a rural town in western North Carolina. My students are hard working individuals, who even though they face many obstacles, give their very best daily.

I am blessed to work with the very best students.

I am also a football coach and track coach. Not only am I able to help students with their academic progress, but I help to instill valuable life lessons through sports.

My Project

My students are wonderful workers and athletes. They want to improve their skills and have asked for a variety of equipment to help them grow and be active for more than 60 minutes a day on the football field.

As their teacher and coach, I am proud of the goals my students have set for themselves.

My students have asked for a speed sled and two speed training resistance parachute trainers to work on their speed during our daily practices. They have also asked for playbook bands to have our football plays available to them on the field. My students have requested a tackling dummy and a collegiate shield to practice safe tackling and blocking techniques. They want a set of agility cones to work on agility drills during daily practice and a kicking tee to perfect their kicking techniques. My students are also wanting a shoulder pad rack, two water bottle holders, and ball bag to help manage their equipment.

Thank you in supporting my students and their ideas to become healthier!
