My Students

We are a special education preschool that serves children from diverse communities. Most of the children that attend my class are English Language learners from lower income homes. Some share a room with parents and siblings. Some sleep on the floor and most qualify for free lunches. These families struggle to provide the necessities, leaving little time or money for enriching activities.

Our classroom offers a reprieve from their daily living situation.

The room is decorated and set-up to allow children to explore while providing a safe and welcoming atmosphere. Providing opportunities for these children at school exposes them to things they may not have at home. Updating and offering new ways to learn and explore is not within the school's budget. Teachers and staff buy items weekly to supplement class learning, but big budget items are beyond our reach.

My Project

Fostering creativity helps children develop socially, mentally and emotionally. Paints, paper and brushes allow the children to explore science with color mixing, fine motor skills by manipulating brushes and math with colors and shapes. Most importantly the students feel good while creating, art helps to boost their confidence.

Art allows everyone to explore, be creative and not worry about doing it "right".

Preschoolers need to feel the paint and experiment with colors and textures. Some of the children have difficulty with sensory play and painting provides them a safe activity, getting as dirty or staying as clean as they want.
