My Students

I am an intervention specialist in an inclusion classroom. My students are identified with a range of disabilities including autism, specific learning disabilities, ADHD, emotional disorders, and other health impairments. We also have an English Language Learner and several at risk students. Additionally, we have typical and several advanced learners.

While most of students come from economically disadvantaged homes, they are eager learners.

Many of our students cannot afford basic school supplies. Sixty-eight percent of our school is on free and reduced price lunch.

My Project

I have chosen materials for this project that will make the art center of my STEAM area more efficient and engaging for my students. The storage boxes will be used to hold student projects until they can return to them.

This project will solve one of the biggest problems of the STEAM art center.

Students only have about 20 minutes of STEAM time at the end of our school day. This is rarely enough time for them to finish. Projects get left all over the classroom and are sometimes damaged or thrown out. Students can take the projects home to finish but often my students living in poverty do not have the supplies or space to continue working on them.

I have included some materials that I feel will add interest to the art area such as feathers, foam shapes and body color crayons. I also added in the STEAM boats, planes and car models. These will bring together engineering and creative arts as the students build functional models and decorate them according to their own tastes.
