Many of my students are migrants. They come from hard-working farmers. Over half of the students in our school are minorities.
Energetic, creative, and resilient are the attributes that best describe our students.
They enter the room with energy for learning about art. Their energy is so strong that it often energizes me.
I have been so honored to have seen these students grow as I was some of the students' art teacher through their elementary school years.
Many of my students come from migrant and lower-income homes. My students come into my classroom with smiles on their faces and always ask me the same question "What are we doing today?" This is why I consider them resilient. We have just been faced with the trauma of Hurricane Irma and yet they still enter my room with a new resilience of creating and moving forward.
I want to give my potters in training something to be excited about when returning back to school. I have talked with my potters (students) through virtual meeting and the levels of stress in their voices are very evident. One thing they all agree on is their desire to be back in the studio creating and relaxing.
I am looking for heroes like yourselves to help me give my potters a surprise when they return to the studio.
These supplies are to support my ceramic program. The extruder will be used in my unit on coil vessels. The glazes and brushes will help in embellishing the coil vessels that my potters in training will be creating.
