My Students

My class this amazing school year are very humorous, sweet, compassionate and talkative 4th graders. They love school, love their classmates and are always working toward being the best they can be.

We learn together in a low-income, Title-1 school that is in a rural suburb of Portland.

Students come from many backgrounds here. Some are children of local area farmers and others are children of parents who value small town values and atmosphere.

We have a very close classroom community and I strive everyday as a teacher to emphasize that love of learning. As a classroom, we learn and grow together everyday.

My Project

Art is most commonly taught by classroom teachers. Due to limited time and resources, we need opportunities to use our creativity in a positive outlet like Art studies.

My students need access to art materials to enhance their creativity and make them well-rounded learners.

We currently have no aprons or a convenient place to dry works of art. There are also a few projects in mind that these items will work perfectly for.

Being a low income, Title I school, I have a few art materials but adding to my collection will allow us to be even more creative in our projects. In addition to requesting aprons and a drying rack as said above, I have also requested the following items: oil pastels to replace ours that are older than my students, most are dried out. I've requested jars to store and sort out various paints, from watercolors to tempura paint. We also need glitter crayons to add some sparkle to our artwork. The last thing we requested were sharpies to add dark detail to our work.
