We have a program in which we have inner-city students come to our school to receive a better education and environment. We have a need for technology and equipment that goes beyond just our school but into surrounding cultures that are void of these things. What we receive will not only benefit all of our students, but will benefit the surrounding communities and people who can't even dream of this type of thing!

"People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."
I guess I put activities and interests under one heading (see above)!
Why Do I Teach?:
I love it! I have a passion for what I do and what I teach about. Obesity is a HUGE problem that is prevalent everywhere and can be stopped. I try to get my students excited about being active and about making healthy choices. I also try to be a living example of what I teach so that they can see that I truly believe what I am teaching them. I want my students to be excited and passionate about making healthy choices for every aspect of their lives!
