My Students

I am so excited for this upcoming school year! As the 2018-2019 year ends, I have begun planning for next year already. Being a dance teacher, it is even more of a struggle to get basic supplies for my class. In my class, we learn anatomy, vocabulary, dance history and over 20 different dance styles to include world dance. These supplies will ensure my students are able to keep up with the work they do in my class, which is a lot! Dance class is beginning to be taken very seriously at our school and it excites me.

On top of Hurricane Harvey impacting if not all, most of these students, they all also come from low income households.

My kids to not have access to everyday essentials so coming to school, seeing a smiling face can be the peak of their day. They come from low-income households yet they come to school everyday knowing that they are surrounded by positive role models who would go above and beyond for them individually.

My Project

The snacks are used as a reward system in my class. If students have something they can earn, they seem to be more motivated and high energy - making my job more fun! All of my students are on free lunch and breakfast because they are from low income households. I would love to be able to give them snacks when they are hungry.

Dance class anchor charts are an essential.

Dance language can seem very "foreign" to students with no experience. These anchor charts can help them all year long on quizzes, tests, choreographing and giving feedback to each other. We are required to have anchor chart in our classroom and unfortunately, I am unable to splurge on these like I would like to.
