My Students

I am the art teacher at a Title I, K-5 elementary school in a low-income urban area. All of our students receive free breakfast, lunch, and snack to help them succeed throughout the day. Once a low-performing school, we have come together to work our way to accreditation for two years in a row!

Despite what my students experience outside of school they always come to art ready to explore, imagine, and create.

I have an average of 400 students (that's about 100 per day) in and out of my art room every week and I look forward to seeing each of their smiling faces!

My Project

When my students are finished with their art project, they need an engaging activity for the rest of the class time in art. Instead of working independently, my students need a chance to develop positive social skills and more opportunities to work with their peers!

The Friendly Loom can be used across all grade levels to create an eye-catching work of our that will enrich our school community.

Weaving will encourage collaboration, positive communication, and creativity across all grade levels. K-5 will not only experiment with weaving yarn, but we will be using recycled materials, raffia, cord, ribbon, pipe cleaners, and more!
