My Students

Education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students, and enthusiastic parents with high expectations- B. Beauprez

I serve students that are inquisitive, eager, and passionate about health and fitness.

My students are classified as 92% disadvantaged and 50% are ESL students. Every class period my students arrive engaged and motivated. Many of my students enjoy physical activities, action passed learning, and engaging physically throughout the day.

At times, my students worry about the lack of resources they have, but I encourage students to persevere and to push forward. The recent effects of Hurricane Harvey can be seen in my student's neighborhoods and many students lack resources additionally due to the recent hurricane.

My Project

The weightlifting and distance training teams are comprised of both male and female students that aspire to be physically fit and active. The team could benefit tremendously from these donations by helping the team to strength train correctly, work on agility, and help team members to create individualized workout routines to aid each of them in enhancing their strength and core for competition. The team is highly motived. Many of the youth on the teams come from areas where there are not many positive activities or extracurricular activities that they can partake in around their prospective neighborhoods. We offer these teams a positive way to engage and interact collectively while teaching social skills and sportsmanship.
