My students are enthusiastic young learners/ artists! They love hands-on learning, exploration, and creation. My students love to question and explore the world around them. In the art classroom, students are encouraged to be their best, express themselves, grow as they take creative risks and explore their creative genius.
My school is a Title I school in which every student is entitled to free breakfast and free lunch.
We service many students with special needs, as well as a large population of ELL (English Language Learners) students. In recent years, we have a growing number of students who live in foster homes and shelters. Our school also has a growing number of students from other areas that have been affected by natural disasters. My students work hard each and every day to combat educational and/or personal struggles that they may be facing.
I would like to give my students the opportunity to learn how to cook with friends. This experience will introduce students to basic cooking and will allow them to share what they have made with their peers. Through cooking- my students will learn about healthy eating habits and life skills. Cooking with peers will also promote increased language development, enhanced fine motor skills, increased math and reading skills, seeing the connecting between science and cooking as well as increasing focus and attention. This experience will allow for students to bond with their peers, make new peers, boost their confidence and explore their palates.
