My Students

My students are the most inspiring people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I teach Art to every grade in a K-8 school, and each of my 400+ students' creativity and curiosity is something that I strive to match every day.

Weather they are 5 years old or 14 years old, my students are always ready to conquer new challenges, and find their individuality in my classroom.

Everything I do is to help them become the best versions of themselves they can possibly be.

My Project

A crucial part of learning is "Carpet Time," a time when students gather together to listen to a story, receive instructions, or see teacher demonstrations. This is difficult to do without a carpet!

As it is now, my students sit on the tile floor during these activities with nothing to guide their space, or to cushion them.

Young children need to have visible boundaries so they can see where to sit and where their personal space is, which is why I have selected a carpet with these boundaries clearly marked. Your donation would help 400+ students on a daily basis!
