My Students

I love teaching at a school that is as diverse as mine! My students all come from many different backgrounds. We have a population of local students who live in the neighborhoods surrounding our school, we have a gifted and talented program, and we also have Spanish and French immersion programs. I love that these students from all around our city get to join each other here on our campus.

Our school's slogan is "One Team," encouraging comradery among students who may have never had the opportunity to collaborate outside of our school.

My students are so creative, and many of them express that coming to art class is their favorite part of their day! It is an honor to teach these students, and I want to make sure they have a studio environment that is safe and has everything they need to create their masterpieces!

My Project

In our art studio, we have three large tables that seat four to seven students each. Currently, we have very old stools around our tables. Slowly, these are breaking. Many of the stools that I have found unsafe due to broken pieces of metal protruding and being unstable have been removed. This is creating an issue in class, and we have no budget for new seats! Many of the stools are also different heights, and students are uncomfortable. I feel if we had new stools at our tables, students would feel safer, more comfortable, and more engaged in the art making process!
