My Students

My students go to a Title I school. I have a variety of students with 40% of them receiving free and reduced price lunches and 14% of them with special needs. There is a grand total of 165 students K-12. The school combines students from around the area and many rural students as well as students from neighboring districts.

Their experience in my class is important.

In one school week, I see students from grades kindergarten to twelfth. My students' needs are different with every class, but they all mean so much to me as an educator.

My Project

In the coming years, I want to integrate literature into my Art classroom. I want to encourage a love for reading through Art. With these books I will be to bring my students new heights in their art work. I will be able to share these stories and illustrations with my students and bring about a love for reading through art.

Literature builds experience.

Children expand their horizons through various experiences like picture books. Help me build my Art library. So, I can share books like Color Dance, Perfect Square, Mouse Shapes, and Mix It Up to help introduce the elements of art: color, shape, form, line, etc. Help me enrich their experience.
