My Students

Our students, our "kids", represent your typical inner-city school kids- kids full of ambition, passion and motivation that want to be able to learn, grow and succeed the same as kids all over this country. As teachers, we want to help nurture our kids and give them every opportunity to grow, and be confident in everything they do, no matter what obstacles they face.

I teach at a Title I school (100% free lunch) where the riots and civil unrest took place in Wisconsin in August 2016.

Our kiddos were resilient, expressed levels of maturity and understanding ahead of their years when discussing and understanding social justice, and even helped plant trees in the area in restoration efforts. My kids face countless obstacles daily concerning racism, poverty, violence and more...typical day to day school necessities, shouldn't be one of them. Thank you for taking the time to consider a wonderful group of kids that deserve every bit the opportunity as we try our best to provide.

My Project

We have been working hard to integrate the arts into all of our core subjects because research has shown it is a most wonderful and effective strategy for helping students learn. My students love creating works of art that allow them to showcase their learning. We do not have an art teacher, and my students will not get "art" class until May. These supplies will help us until then and longer.

Having even just basic art and project supplies (crayons, markers, paper, and glue) will help my students truly take ownership of their learning through artistic and creative expression.

Having this ability to create to lean, will help my students feel at ease and give them less to stress an worry about and therefore less energy and effort they're spending away from learning and growing their brilliant minds.

I am also hoping that providing my students with these materials, they will have an additional tool for self-expression that could provide an outlet for stress, anxiety and other events in their lives.
