My Students

My students are diverse and eclectic scholars who reside in downtown Kansas City. Their diversity in culture, race, language and learning style only contributes to a vibrant learning place. My scholars are incredibly imaginative and use creative ways to solve problems. My students formulate ideas into actions and this shines in their learning. The variety of learning projects and outcomes will teach you so much about who they are as unique individuals! Our school has high expectations to ensure that our scholars will become successful 21st century learners through project-based learning, blended learning and choice-based learning practices. Through such learning practices, students use a variety of technology mediums to bring their learning to life. Our scholars are given time to independently understand their learning potentials and outcomes. Our community and city is an extension of our school and we believe in this necessary engagement. Every day, scholars traverse through our city using city parks as playgrounds and the downtime library as our resource for reading and engaging in literacy.

My Project

This year, our art department was honored to install a kiln to embark on many ceramic projects! This has opened the creative doors in so many ways. Having our own kiln will allow students in Kindergarten through fifth grade to create clay projects all year long! We would like to be able to decorate our clay projects with a special paint called glaze, and this comes in so many different colors and styles, some of which are requested in this project. Students will get the chance to learn the science behind this process and experiment with their projects! Because this is a 3D medium, we all need sculptural tools such as rigid wrap to create some paper mache projects also.
