My Students

"I look forward to this class every day," is a phrase I repeatedly hear from my art students. This is the students' hour to challenge their critical thinking skills while creatively expressing themselves without feeling the stress of being "wrong." Of the 2,000+ students enrolled in our high school, over 600 take an art class each year.

Our art classes are the environment where English language learners, special needs learners, gifted learners, athletes, musicians, writers, and scholars come together to communicate and express themselves through visual media.

This is where many students who feel discouraged about their abilities elsewhere find that they excel. My desire is to provide students with a variety of means to explore their individuality, ideas, and experiences through art.

My Project

We have an average of 600 students who take ceramics each year. While our program is fortunate to have a large kiln for our ceramics classes, the shelves and posts are warped and breaking, making it difficult to fire students' ceramic pieces without damaging them. Each piece of pottery is fired twice, which puts a large demand on the functionality of our kiln. With new kiln shelves and posts we can properly load the kiln to efficiently and effectively maximize the space and have a quicker turnaround to maintain productivity in our classes. The wire loop tools are great for students to use to remove excess clay from their pieces, which will also help us fire projects quicker. These tools and kiln furniture make a difference in students' learning because they take pride in their creative work and are excited to see their finished project come out of the kiln, ready to show off to their friends and family.
