My Students

Every day students from 6th, 7th and 8th grade enter my classroom with hidden passions and minds open. They come in ready to experience something new and exciting. Each student has the possibility to create something completely unique that fits his or her personal interests and experiences.

The school district has a wide variety of students from different social and economic backgrounds.

The majority of the students qualify for free or reduced price lunch though. Most students come to school without the basic necessities needed to learn. Art is an escape for many of the students who aren't very successful in core curriculum classes. Trying to meet the needs of 120+ students on a daily basis requires me to think outside the box to reach their individual needs. Amongst the many students I teach, I have several students with physical and mental disabilities. Inspiring a love of art and keeping kids engaged is one of my top priorities.

My Project

Various 3D filaments, 3d printer nozzles, repair kit, Smooth-on 3D print coating, Xacto sculpting tools, spray paint primer, Arteza acrylic paint, gel pens, colorless blenders, and paintbrushes will allow my students to create historical three-dimensional sculptures and help bring the past into present day life. The students will be able to put their sculptures on display and bring appreciation to the history of so many art periods. The Onkron monitor mount and laser jet printer ink will be used with current computers in class so kids can research and print historical resources for research papers and designs. New innovative technology in the classroom would allow students to experience art and in a different medium. This would help bridge the gap between fine art, history, digital design, and the new growing STEM concepts in today's ever-changing and competitive career paths.

Students of this generation love using technology, and they work really well with it.

Providing students with new technology in the classroom will allow them to put their skills and interests to use in a productive and creative way. Even my most reluctant students will be more engaged in our various projects throughout the year.
