My students are creative 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders that are enthusiastic about learning and creating art through my art class. A considerable amount of the student population in my school is on free or reduced lunch. Due to budget cuts, I continually search for ways to provide a more desirable art experience to my students by applying for grants to fund field trips, purchase additional art materials and incorporate technology into my classroom. I have created an environment of care and respect in my classroom by modeling that behavior myself. I encourage my students to get to know one another, so they can learn to appreciate their artwork, differences, ideas and solutions. Teaching is very rewarding, especially when my students have shared that my class is the reason they wake up in the morning to come to school or how my class has been a positive influence in their lives.
