Giving My Students the World, One Experience at a Time

My Students

My students are some of the brightest most thoughtful kids I have ever met. They work so very hard to achieve their greatest goals and do so with pride. Not only do my students strive to learn each and everyday, but I learn from them as well.

Although my students come from diverse backgrounds, challenges and cultures, they come to school each and everyday ready to learn, and ready to be challenged.

There is nothing better than being able to learn and grow with these kiddos. They deserve the world, and if I could give them any part of it, I would.

My goal is to inspire and instill leadership skills in each and everyone of my students. I want them to believe they can do anything, just the way I believe in them.

My Project

This project is for an incredible adventure that will help me to teach diversified art lessons from around the world to my students. I will explore significant destinations, such as; Paris, Milan, and Rome.

Students will benefit directly from Art lesson plans that will now give both student and teacher historical context to some of the world’s most important pieces of art and their relationship to academic learning.

Museums from across Europe, including; the Academia Museums in Florence/Venice , the Leonardo de Vinci Museum, and Doge’s Museum will help my teaching skills in history and social studies topics. The culmination of this art expo will be getting to visit and see Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper and his dedicated Leonardo Da Vinci Museum. I plan to make several lesson plans from my time in Florence and Venice. Milan will allow us to attend several half-day workshops on European painting skills and techniques. There are also lessons on teaching young children these concepts within a classroom.

I plan to bring back from these workshops material and lessons that I can build an entire unit on as well as add to those already being taught. Art, History, Social Studies and the importance of these artists are just some examples of what will be included in my many lessons. My professional instruction will be enhanced with the cultural and diverse experiences in this European Exploration of the Arts. Students will also be provided with opportunities to create artwork from these time periods for their own learning, reflection, and development.

This project includes fees including airfare, food, and lodging, during our search for world-class art, and museum/tour activities and interactive art exhibits with some world-class Professional Development and historical sites and events. Thank you for donating and helping myself to grow as an educator.
