Teaching art is the best job EVER! For the past 5 years, I have been teaching at a Title 1 (low income) elementary school located near Washington DC. I am the schools first full time art teacher. I am honored and thrilled to bring art into these children's life. Many of which have now discovered their love for art and the healing/calming properties it provides. Studies show that access to arts education in school offers distinct benefits to economically disadvantaged youth and students. Unfortunately, my school is extremely overcrowded which has prevented me from having a classroom. I am 'art on a cart'. However, this year there is a room I have been offered. The problem is that there are no tables or chairs. Our school is struggling for supplies. I am hoping Donors Choose can help me provide a proper art room for the FIRST time to my eager, caring, curious and loving students.
