My Students

We are a Title I school with a high English Language Learner population.

I teach at a Title I school in California where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students are low income, come from underprivileged backgrounds, and have seen or experienced things no 5 year old should have to. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

My students love art. They get extremely excited anytime we take out pastels, watercolors, tempera paints, you name it!

We use the outdoor painting easels to paint letters, numbers, free paint, as well as painting assignments tied to the curriculum.

Sometimes we are able to paint outside, and sometimes we have to paint indoors because of inclement weather. I am in need of a sturdy painting easel that can accommodate a small group of 4. Students undeniably love art. Especially in Kindergarten when they have not quite mastered expressing themselves through writing. Painting is a fantastic way for my students to express themselves and connect their learning to the standards and curriculum. Painting is also a great way to help students fine-tune their fine motor skills. Thank you!
