My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high-poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, they come to school ready to learn and eager for new experiences.

I strive to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

My students want to know more about Georgia O'Keeffe. We will start by leaning about basic art techniques and color theory. We will them study specific artists like O'Keeffe and tie her art work into many curricular areas. We will be studying interdependent relationships in ecosystem including how plants grow. O'Keeffe was know for her artwork focusing on plants and flowers.

I will be using books about and prints of Georgia O'Keeffe's art to help engage my students in the study of the natural world around them and on the impact humans have on our environment.

We will them create our own art inspired by O'Keeffe and deepen our appreciation for the beauty of the natural world.
