My Students

Exceeding beyond expectations perfectly sums up my students. Every day, students here come to school with challenges far beyond their years, but every single day, they are able to amaze me. Not only do they come to school, they are also in one of the highest achieving districts around, despite being one of the most impoverished districts.

There is nothing I love more than seeing our students achieve despite their circumstances.

They work harder, show incredible resourcefulness, and use every advantage they are given to make the best of their circumstances.

My Project

Team sports build more than just athletic ability. They teach students to work together, build relationships, take responsibility, and learn from those around them. When girls play on a team together, there is nothing they can't achieve.

By giving these girls new bats, you are providing an opportunity to learn and grow in more than just sports.

Unfortunately, our school lost our softball team for a few years, but it is coming back strong. We have a new group of girls that want nothing more than to show the community and district that they can be a powerhouse team. They have to make up for those lost years in both practice, determination, and also equipment.

Many bats they use are older and need updating. A few new things will help give them confidence and a great start to the season.
