My Students

When the students walk into the art room, there is this energy unlike other spaces in the school. They know they get to explore different materials and styles of art. This is a place of creativity. I encourage the students to explore.

"I believe that every person is born with talent."- Maya Angelou.

The students at the school I teach at come from all over the King County School District. We celebrate diversity through integration of the arts into other core subject areas with an emphasis on the multicultural appreciation. We are a Title I school, and over 80% of the students receive a reduced rate or free lunches. There is a large population living below the poverty level.

My Project

I teach art to from a social justice lens, this book Is inspirational and will give them hope. Many times I hear from them no one cares about them.

My goal is to do shared reading from selected chapters for an enriching conversation.

The youth in detention are avid readers. It is a productive use of their time.

I intend to give each student a copy and have one housed in the individual halls.

Thanks for supporting my students it is greatly appreciated. This gift of a book is important. They do matter.
