My Students

I am teaching at a very diverse school, culturally, financially, and emotionally. There is a multitude of races due to the school being located in a military town. Students and families are transient due to military orders changing constantly. Student numbers and student demographics change often.

I am teaching a health and physical education course to mostly freshman level students.

Like most freshman across the country, they are new to high school, and I would like to make health and physical education an exciting experience. These freshmen are energetic, fun, and eager to learn. This community also experience loss due to Hurricane Florence. Many of our community members have been displaced and have financial hardships and considerations due to the impact of Hurricane Florence.

My Project

Funding this project will allow my students to experience a sport other than basketball. Flag football is a great team building activity and it is a fantastic workout! This project will give my students the equipment necessary for them to learn the game of football.

Flag football will improve my students throwing and catching skills and will encourage the students to work together to create strategies on how to score or defend.

By supporting this project, you will give my students a classroom set of belts with flags, jerseys, and two footballs. This will allow the entire class to participate, instead of rotating, and will expose students to an activity that they can participate in throughout their lifetime!
