I serve as visual arts teacher in low income community. The students come from homes of single parenting, mostly moms or grandparents. They are required to wear school uniforms in which most can't afford. The students are often times left not thought about because of their environment. We have some of the best students in the state of Oklahoma and I know for a fact our students are going some where because of committed educators like myself who is willing to go above and beyond the call of duty and will do whatever it takes to make student they have the tools they need to successful each and everyday.
The students will be able to have school pride by seeing their own art work displayed around the school. The students will take care of the school because they have put forth the effort and hard work to display the many art pieces we will complete throughout the year. The students will gain confidence and motivated to continue their creative arts skills beyond elementary. The students will display art work and have special art galleries depending on the school activities. They students will have a sense of pride because they get to see their work in many places not just in the art classroom.
