My name is Hana Lamb. I am a Math and Sports Medicine Teacher at North Tahoe High School. Next year North Tahoe High School will be implementing a Sports Medicine II course as part of the sports medicine CTE pathway. This course is designed to have students learn the basic fundamentals of careers in sports medicine. I am looking to acquire a knee and ankle sports injury trainer for my students as well as a new sports medicine bench for students to practice evaluating, treating and assessing injuries. Students will learn through practical hands-on application how to assess, prepare, prevent, evaluate and treat emergency procedures. Students will have the option to study and take their MA licensing test through the NHA. This course incorporates project-based learning to prepare students for entry-level employment and future academics that will prepare students for pursuing health science related courses at the post-secondary level. Throughout this course students will develop cognitive and critical thinking skills to assess various first responder scenarios. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to review my grant.
This course will target special education, English Learner and Socio-economically disadvantaged students by blending life and career skills for careers ranging from athlete/coach to physical trainer, medical technician, physical therapist or doctor. I also am giving the students different opportunities to train with an athletic training as an internship to help prepare them for jobs post high school. This class is a career technical education class and will benefit all students who take this to prepare them for life and career skills that will only benefit our Lake Tahoe community.
I would define success for this grant by having gotten the resources my students need to prepare them on how to assess and treat injuries with the knee and ankle injury sports medicine trainer device and another sports medicine table so the students can practice taping for other student athletes at North Tahoe High School. The students in sports medicine 2 will be doing internships where they will be assessing, taping and assisting with treatment of other north tahoe students. This is why it is imperative to have all equipment necessary to train my students next year. For the 2023-2024 school year we will have 2 periods of sports medicine I and 1 of sports medicine II. The materials I gain for the 2023-2024 school year will be just the start of how widely it will be implemented across all grades levels and students in North Tahoe High School who take Sports Medicine CTE.
This grant will be implemented as soon as possible. I already know what I need for the class next year and I will start ordering the materials as soon as possible to set up in my new room for next year.
I can't share the knee and ankle injury trainer with other subjects because its specific to sports medicine but I will be able to use the next athletic training table to tape up all athletes at North Tahoe High School for sporting events.
I am getting some district funding for other materials I need to start the new class.
I know in my heart this sports medicine class will be a unique and highly beneficial class for both our school and community in Lake Tahoe. I am so excited and honored to be the teacher who starts this program at North Tahoe high school. The funding I hope to get from the EEF will be the essential foundation that this program needs to gain momentum to support all students from special education, English Learner and Socio-economically disadvantaged students to gifted students in my classroom. I will be able to use this grant to prepare students for entry-level employment and future academics that will prepare students for pursuing health science related courses at the post-secondary level. Thank you so much for your time reviewing my application.
