My Project

My first graders live in a close-knit community that values education. They are excited to come to school every day, and I love seeing their faces light up when they try or learn something new! As a small, public, elementary school, we have a strong sense of community, but sometimes a smaller resource pool from which to get the supplies we need.

I believe in each of my students and want to foster his or her creativity and thirst for learning.

My students enjoy creating physical works of art, and I enjoy guiding them through this creative process. They love expressing themselves, and I love giving them the tools, paint, pastels, markers, and frames, to do so! What is more exciting to a child than a blank space on which to express him/herself? I can't wait to see what they come up with!
