My Students

My students are low-income, high poverty dreamers.

We are at a Title I school.

Our school is over 95% free lunch. Some of our students depend on our school for needs that cannot be met at home. My students have been identified as students with Special Needs. Although they have to deal with a lot of issues at home, I have taught them that they must defend any of their dreams.

It is challenging for me to see their struggles but I fight to show them that they are capable of achieving anything with a little help. Our students face trauma that affects their learning daily. Their mindsets are fight, freeze, or flight when they deal with issues at school. I strive to teach my students resilience every day because of their situations at home.

My Project

Having a Cricut maker in the classroom will allow the students to see their designs come to life. As a teacher, I enjoy exposing my students to the different technology that I believe will allow them to be creative.

The Cricut will allow me to allow my students' artwork to come to life.

Imagine seeing your work created into something that can be shared. As a turnaround arts school, I have the opportunity to integrate different art forms into the classroom. I believe the Cricut will be a great addition to the mission of showing my students where creativity can take them.
