My Students

My school serves approximately 650 students. My students are a unique mix of learners from diverse backgrounds and speak a variety of languages. In our classrooms, you will often find students collaborating while learning new skills and solving problems. My students' diverse backgrounds and varied experiences help shape each of them into amazing and unique individuals. Their differences provide our students with an opportunity to learn from one another. From the first day of school, we work together to create our classroom family that our students love to be a part of.

My Project

Students in the art room need new and a better variety of drawing books as well as other materials. Drawing books will serve as instant resources for students in their independent learning time. With access to better quality and up-to-date drawing books, students will be able to seek out learning resources on their own and use them at their own pace. Research shows that learning is done best when it is student driven.

These new resources will better provide for students to partake in student driven learning.

Other resources include new sharpie markers and paint refills.
