My Students

My students are bright, engaging, young minds. Our school is an urban, inner city, Title I school. My students come from an array of incredibly diverse backgrounds. They are socio-economically, religiously, culturally, and racially very diverse. As an example, we have 22 languages spoken in our school.

Every day this diverse group of young minds comes together to share ideas as they learn.

They give me great hope for the future as they show the amazing ability to think, care, and persevere.

My Project

My students need new art supplies to kindle their creativity. These supplies will be used in all subjects throughout the day. I teach my general class for the majority of the day, and do science rotations with all third graders. The students are scrambling to find adequate supplies to create posters, design projects, analyze data in graphs, and label diagrams. Having colored pencils, markers, and paint will allow them to color code, create, and enhance their learning experience. Students also need to be able to create visual art.

A donation of art supplies will allow my students to use their imaginations, to create, and to have fun while learning.
