My Students

We are located in the oldest areas of town and about 75% of my students are on free and reduced lunches. Our school's homeless and poverty rate is so high we also provide a free breakfast for every student every day. My students are very diverse in their backgrounds, needs, and goals for the future. Our population is 45% Hispanic and about 10% Asian many of these are not native English speakers. Many of my students are being raised in a non-traditional home. They are being raised by grandparents, other family members or they are in DHS custody.

With all of their challenges they come in ready to work every day.

This work ethic and makes be strive to be a better teacher for them. I only hope I can inspire them as much as they do me every day.

My Project

Donating these bean bag toss games and discs, you will be providing opportunities for my students to participate in intramural type activities during our WIN time. WIN is an extra period of the day that provides our students with time for extra help, intervention, grade rehab, or enrichment.This equipment will help us provide a variety of activities to offer for those students who, despite their challenges, are not struggling academically.

Not only will this equipment provide an non academic alternative for WIN, but it will also offer opportunities to our students who might not excel at more traditional sports.

This physical activity might be the only opportunity for them to get moving during the day. Also, if they are not in the more traditional team sports this will foster the development those team working and sportsmanship skills so necessary for a well rounded adult.
