My Students

My students are from a very rural community and the school can be considered a "frontier school." Most of them have lived here their whole life and many believe that because our school is so small, we have very little funding and many of the students accept that these things will not change and that we will continue to lose.

I know with the right equipment, they will be able to alter this belief and develop a growth mindset and realize that they can achieve much more than they have ever expected.

I want them to realize that they are worth so much more and that there are people who want them to succeed and to achieve great things. I want to be able to provide them with memorable learning experiences both in class and in their athletic pursuits that will motivate them for life.

My Project

In every class our students have to sit in chairs or desk which can promote an unhealthy posture which will eventually lead to back problems. It has been proven in many studies that sitting is bad for you and part of that reason is the lack of core engagement. One solution for this is the use of a yoga ball that will help them engage their core.

Support our class by providing these yoga balls to build and support a strong core during classwork.

With an option to sit comfortably on these balls, our students will be able to learn how to better engage their cores to support a healthier lifestyle. These balls can also be used in our PE class, where the students will be able to further strengthen their core.
