My Students

I teach high school students from a variety of backgrounds- many receive free or reduced lunch- but they are creative, thoughtful, and lively! They challenge me everyday to bring my "A" game to the classroom and provide meaningful instruction.

My students deserve the same opportunity that all students do: to create work that is functional, powerful, and lasting.

With their priorities in different places due to financial concerns, unstable home lives, or social pressures, students struggle to find the right path here at Surrattsville. My classroom has become a kind of safe haven for students who are bogged down by the stress of other classes. My students deserve to know that creative expression is important.

My Project

My ceramics students LOVE working with clay, but unfortunately, we are limited by our budget. With the supplies I was able to attain last school year, my students were able to make only 2 projects- TWO clay projects- in a class called "Ceramics."

I have gotten really creative with other 3D materials, but there is nothing like getting messy and creative with clay!

I still have all of the mugs, vases, bowls, and sculptures that I made throughout my school days, and I get so excited seeing my students take their finished work home. In December, we are throwing an art show specifically for 3D work, and I hope to show the county how talented our small school is!

I am lucky enough (and my students are too) to have a kiln in my room, but securing enough clay for my students each year is a struggle. My students come from all different backgrounds (many are on reduced lunch), so school supplies are usually not the first thing on their (or their parents') minds. I hope to secure clay for my classes so that their creativity can flourish and my program can continue for years to come!
