My Students

My students are a smart, fun and energetic group of kids! They come to school each day ready to learn despite the challenges they face growing up in a high poverty neighborhood of Chicago.

97% of the students I teach come from low income families and struggle to provide their children with just the basics of food, shelter and safety.

I want to make sure my students have access to the materials and supplies they need to be successful in school.

I realize that, as their teacher, I have a huge influence in shaping their lives. To do this I need to do all I can to engage them in ways that access all of their intelligences. In my classroom, students learn through hands on experiences, movement, visuals, and intensive small group instruction to target individual needs. My students deserve to have an awesome academic experience to help them succeed!

My Project

Basic supplies such as crayons, markers, glue and paper might seem trivial but they are important for small developing hands in a primary classroom. My students love creating! Whether it be adding illustrations and color to their writing, creating poster sized visuals for group learning or showing off their imaginative side during art class they need to be able to explore through the visual arts!

Research shows that exposure to the arts increases student achievement and success!

My students are already at a disadvantage due to their socio-economic status. Providing them with basic supplies, that they can call their own, for everyday work will boost their confidence and give them the tools they need to succeed!
