My Students

With large classes, outdated textbooks, and low socioeconomic climate, teaching theater arts in our Title I district is increasingly challenging. Due to these factors, funding for creative classrooms is nonexistent. My textbooks are over 15 years old, I don't have a full class set, and I teach drama with very limited resources. And, to top it all off, Hurricane Florence really did a number on my community. My students, predominantly Native American, seem to take all this in stride.

My students are extremely creative, boisterous teenagers that have amazing talent.

By the time they are in Theatre Arts II, they all seem like family, and as in all families, we have our struggles both emotional and financial. One of the financial struggles results in having few resources, a problem that I hope I can help solve with your help.

Creativity runs rampant in my classroom. I have actors, lighting technicians, costumers, and scenic artists. My teens seem to thrive on our hands-on projects, as well as our scene work.

My Project

I am requesting multiple packs of 12"x12" colorful card stock, 12"x12" vinyl sheets, a 12"x12" cutting mat for Cricut, a carrying case for the Cricut, 40 replacement blades for the Cricut, and 12"x50' of clear vinyl transfer paper.

These materials will allow students to explore and learn creatively through fun and exciting projects made from scratch.

My classroom is a creative arts class, we spend a lot of time on special projects and these materials will be useful to my students. These resources will also be helpful when making posters for our performing arts recitals. Students will also be able to create special props and costume accessories using the requested supplies.

At PSHS I am fortunate to teach theatre arts students grades 9 through 12. I am also involved in our Marvelous Rams Team, the faculty coordinator for our Purnell Players Drama Club, and I am the artistic director for CenterStage, the PSRC All-County High School Theater Group. Funding this project will allow students to work together and explore different ways to present the materials they have learned in a fun and creative way. My students love to be creative!
