My Students

My classroom is full of life and every student is welcome. I have many students who eat lunch with me or visit me who are not in any of my classes. My classroom is a safe zone where kids can feel comfortable to be themselves.

My students come from mixed demographics.

I have a large percentage of kids from underprivileged homes. Everything that I request for my classroom is directly used with all my students. My kids are full of life and are eager to learn. They are all around eleven to twelve years old and will be young adults in the near future. They are the future of our country and I take teaching them very seriously. They will be the people who change the world!

My Project

Can you imagine the lessons my kids will be learning from the great artists around the world?

Art history is the history of culture and expression.

Students can learn so much about the world and how they can fit in as individuals. I like teaching my students the beauty of art and how they can contribute to the world as individuals. I want them to be proud of who they are and take chances as they grow into adults. We use art history to increase their critical thinking skills and help them to find ways to express themselves.
