My Students

We go to school in a rural area, and my class consists of a diverse population including Native Americans from our nearby reservation, as well as a large Hispanic population that aides in our farming community.

All of my students qualify for free breakfast and lunch.

We also have a local National Guard Unit in our area and have a lot of military families with parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins serving in our beautiful country. We are dedicated to helping our students and their families. Regardless of these factors, I am fortunate to work with students that love to be at school and learn each day. Our school is full of energy and excitement, which I love being a part of!

My students are extremely enthusiastic learners. They are always full of life and their love for learning is catching! I can't wait each day to see that light bulb look come on when they understand a new concept. They love to have hands-on, engaging learning activities for every subject in school.

From the moment they walk in the door in the morning, they are ready to learn and find out what the day has for them.

My Project

I would like my students to learn about the different cultures in our world through art and literacy. We could read about them and do different art projects based on that culture, like weaving and origami. Art supplies such as brushes, paint, weavers, yarn, origami will help my students to create art projects from other countries.

Our task regarding creativity, is to help children climb their own mountains, as high as possible.

My students want to be creative and expressive but they are limited to what they can do because of their academic standards. I want to be able to bring creativity back into my classroom. With these supplies, and your help, I can do this.
