My Students

My students love to create new things and work to solve problems. Additionally, they don't mind challenges and can even find hard work fun. Our students use the library to explore, create, research, and learn. We strive to prepare our kids for the future in ways that are relevant and engaging.

The kids at my school are comprised of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders from diverse backgrounds.

There is a fairly even balance of the "haves" and the "have-nots" in our school, but we have a strong sense of community among our kids.

My Project

This project aims to teach kids about their own culture and then promote their cultural differences by having them design a cultural coat of arms.

This unique logo will be used by them to create a custom t-shirt that they can wear with pride.

Students will use the silk screening inks and silk screen material to lay out their designs and then the flash dryer will be used to finalize the process.

As I encourage the kids to learn about their own cultures and promote them, we hope to be able to build a better understanding and acceptance of the large diversity represented in our middle school.

By tying our cultural diversity in with this hands-on learning experience, students will have the opportunity to make lasting and meaningful connections.
