My Students

My awesome second graders come from a very low socioeconomic background with the majority falling below the poverty line. They are mainly English language learners (72%) and many of them live in homes which house multiple families under the same roof. The median income is well below poverty level, with some being homeless. Some of these seven- and eight-year olds have the sole responsibility of taking care of their younger siblings while their parents are working, with many parents working more than one job. Others are latchkey children.

Our school is Title I and 80% of the children receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch.

In addition to the many challenges that these hard-working students face, they also are coping with the fact that our school is situated in a high crime area with frequent gang activity. My children have extremely limited access to technology in their homes, yet with all these obstacles, my students come to school with much enthusiasm and an eager desire to learn.

My Project

“Art allows children to explore, build on and record their own creative and imaginative ideas.” This is why as a teacher I am very passionate about bringing art to my students on a weekly basis. However in order to do this, we desperately need watercolor sets and paper so that my students can create and paint pictures of things that they learned in class. Some things will be inspired by such great artists like; Monet, Picasso, Van Gough, Chagall, and other artists. With your thoughtful and generous contribution, these learners will have the opportunity to integrate arts with content subject matter. Thereby enhancing their overall learning experience.
