My Students

My students are creative and loving. They have joyous personalities and show up each day to learn. The majority of the students are on the autistic spectrum and spend 4-5 class periods in one of two special education classrooms. In these classrooms, the students receive individualized attention from the three adults (one teacher and two aides) present. Here, they can be themselves, laugh with peers who understand their humor and share their interests.

Our school is small which allows the students in this classroom to be part of a larger, supportive community.

The students participate in grade level activities such as year long projects, field trips, and internships. While this school offers unique opportunities, it still faces challenges. We are a Title I school in an urban area and our school district is currently experiencing a fiscal crisis. In the middle of this unrest, our staff works hard to create a supportive and safe environment for our students.

My Project

My students are wonderful artists and are eager to practice the art of manga. This year we were able to provide them with a full class period of art and when asked what they want to focus on, they unanimously said manga. To do so, we need pens, markers, paper, pencils, and coloring books from which to learn.

We are asking for manga art supplies that will fuel their creativity and joy of school.

With these manga art supplies, our art class can explore a whole new medium of art that aligns with their interests. In addition, they can combine their artwork with academics as they write their own mangas.
