My Students

Our school is a small multicultural community within a larger urban area. Many students are from socioeconomically disadvantaged homes. We also have a wonderful community of deaf and hard of hearing students that mainstream into our general education classes, making our school truly a place of learning for all types of learners.

My students are a highly motivated, curious, and intelligent group of second graders.

They love to learn new things and take on challenges. They come from a wide range of ethnicities and many of them are second language learners. Oftentimes, the materials we receive from DonorsChoose.org are the only opportunity they have to access the creative tools they need to develop 21st-century skills. This makes your donation to my project even more important and meaningful in their lives.

My Project

My students love to create beautiful works of art. They need the proper tools to do this. Crayons can only go so far. True artists need to use a variety of tools.

In my classroom, creativity is the inspiration for all of our learning.

Watercolor pencils and watercolor paints will allow students to showcase their artistic talents. They will also add life to our language arts program. We do a lot of writing and with each story they write, students need to create an art piece to go with it.

Watercolors are bold and subtle. They are one of the greatest tools for children to use as they can create so many different effects. We can't wait to start painting!
