My Students

I teach at an outdoor elementary charter school. Our school’s pillars are inquiry, community, and nature. Our school is a learning laboratory where students spend the majority of each day outside in one of our outdoor learning environments on our three hundred and seventy-nine-acre campus. We hike an average of five to seven miles a day through our school’s “hallways”. All of this means that I have students who are adaptable, resilient, and adventurous! They embrace a growth mindset, ready to tackle a day on the trails whether we are wearing boots, snowshoes, or skis.

My Project

Our charter school does not have a formal art program, and we are doing our best to provide quality art experiences for our students.

These supplies will enrich our students’ opportunities in art and give them a chance to design, sculpt, and create pottery pieces.

Since our school is nature based, making earthen art is a uniquely powerful experience. Pottery is one of the oldest art forms, and by making a piece students learn a traditional art form that served an important role in creating tools for past civilizations. This art lesson can be meaningfully tied into many social studies lessons to help students make connections to other cultures.
