My Students

My students are energetic, excited to learn and always work hard in spite of their disabilities. They are curious about the world around them. All of my students are special needs students, some of them are non-verbal and have speech impairments. They have a range of abilities and disabilities, but they are very creative.

My students enjoy hands-on materials that help to foster learning.

Most of my students are economically disadvantaged, my campus is a Title I school and 78% of the students are economically disadvantaged. They enjoy creating colorful artwork in History.

The needed supplies will provide them with the opportunity to express themselves and learn more about the world around them as they explore US History and World History lessons.

My Project

My students are curious to learn about the world around them. As they rotate to the art center, they will have the opportunity to express their talents. The needed materials will provide my students with the gift of creativity as they explore US History and World History.

This project will enhance students' learning and help them explore the community and the world around them.

The needed materials will provide students with the opportunity to bring brightness to their artwork, it will also provide an opportunity for my students to express themselves and show their talents using diverse art paintings. Students will be able to showcase their work in the hallway and the classroom to display the ability in their disabilities.
