My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.

They like to move. They love to read and love lots of positive attention.

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 hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Our school is a Title I School, and all of the students qualify for free lunch we don't get a budget to buy paint or any art supplies that we need in our class. We are asking for paint and clay to make art projects. We need to paint our wonderful pieces of art. It's a struggle when you don't the appropriate colors during an art lesson.

My students are enthusiastic learners, and when they have the right materials, they are able to accomplish an amazing ART projects.

We are getting ready to create wonderful pieces of art for mother's day!
