My Students

My students are from a school where most students receive free or reduced lunch. We are located in rural Eastern Kentucky and the students are very proud of that. My students love learning and love being active outside of school. They are involved in many different activities such as sports, band, drama, etc. Such programs help keep our students out of trouble and off of drugs that have become a problem in almost every town or city in America. I am proud of my students and all of their accomplishments and only want the best for them.

My Project

In music, we teach how many different cultures and types of people have influenced music and how we as musicians would not be where we are without these people.

In a marching band, everyone is welcome; however, they need a proper instrument to be self-motivated students.

Our band does not have good trumpets to compete at marching, concert, or pep bands. Our students teach each other through peer teaching and teach the young players how to play. Our students do a great job but we do not have the trumpets to keep adding to our band. We need a new trumpet.

With this new instrument, students can and will be able to learn in an environment that promotes learning and success. Without a proper working instrument, students become discouraged and give up. This will help our learning environment by providing the much needed equipment.
