My Students

Our school has a very diverse student population. We are spread across the spectrum of highly wealthy doctors' and lawyers' children; mixed in with children who barely have a home. To some of our students, school is "home" or the safety net of their lives. Many of our students even come from military homes with a parent(s) who is(are) serving our country. Within this range, I see all of the students in art class.

It should not matter who you are or where you come from; when you come to school, every child should get an opportunity to learn and grow!

I want to help these students become the best they can, by equipping them with the materials that they need to continue their journey in life.

My biggest goal is to teach these students that being creative, innovative thinkers will help them in anything they do in their lives. Being a creative, bold thinker can help them go anywhere they want with their life!

My Project

The items in this project are to complete a previous project of fidget feet bands, as well as add to our treasure box. The students are loving the current feet bands that we have, but the rest of the order was lost somehow. So, I have been able to create a new project and add some of the funds towards it.

Please help my art classroom complete the bands of the rest of the chairs and get some fidget toys for the prize box.

I try to keep the positive goals for my students to want to make good choices and not just hold consequences over their heads.
