My Students

When you see the work of my students, you will not know that they are children. I teach Band at our urban middle school, along with an Art class, and am working alongside my students to continue to develop our talents.

The desire that my kids show for learning is nothing short of amazing.

Our community has embraced us as we work on continuing to develop a program that all of our children will be proud of for many years to come. As our program continues to flourish, we find ourselves in need of more equipment.

My Project

I teach a Character Design elective that is quite popular at our urban middle school! Students have actively engaged in the drawing lessons, as Art is one of the most rewarding and fun subjects any person could ever study regardless of age! My students frequently do activities that could be highly enhanced by being able to see myself and other students drawing live. A document camera would allow for all of us to be able to share not only the product of our art work, but also the process in which we create it. Seeing the process will naturally enable us all to learn from each other as we progress our talents through hard work.
