My Students

I am a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district. Despite the many challenges my students face, they look forward to coming to a ​school where I provide creative and meaningful experiences.

My students come in with smiles and are excited to know what the daily plans are, which are memorable to them.

As I prepare my first-grade​ students for college and careers, I also remind them that learning can be fun. My students excel even though​ the odds are against them with all the challenges they face at home and at school.

My Project

These supplies will be used in various art centers and at student desks. They will use the crayons, paper, and protector sheets for projects and assignments. The copy paper will provide a blank canvas for students to share their artistic skills and will be put into the protector sheets to preserve the artwork and enjoy gallery walks around the classroom. The hands-on globe will used for social studies and science instruction and help students conceptualize their planet and world.

Your contribution to my gifted and talented classroom will make an important difference to so many students and allow the art to shine through their samples.

These children deserve all the best in their school day and having a variety of art materials will be wonderful. Thank you for your support and donations.
