My Students

I currently teach at a Title I school. It's a low-income area in town that nobody wants to go to. I absolutely love my school and my students! We are a hidden gem. I can't explain my love for teaching or my students without feeling mushy and giddy. They have had such rough life experiences and I just want to love on them and show them they are worth it! I grew up just like they did and I now have such a strong desire to show them the way!

My Project

Recently our district cut out our art program... our students no longer have art as a special and the only time we can do art is in the classroom. Supplies are scarce and I don't want that to be the reason kids cannot express their creativity. We will use the paints throughout the year for our crafts. Using artwork helps the kids bring their writing to life! Students love to paint poster comic strips of their narrative writing. Our first project will be a Valentine’s Day craft for mom (or Grandma) BRING ART BACK! These supplies will help students to model their visualization !
