"Sassy, smart and dedicated" are the words I would use to describe the students at my school. As a teacher in a Title I school, my students are faced with several challenges, both in and out of the classroom. Despite the challenges they face, I love to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences each and every day.
My students are very dedicated when it comes to learning.
Their culture is a huge part of who they are. I strive to bring out the best in them and engage them in issues that will motivate them to change their world. They have spent countless hours practicing and preparing for state tests, but in my classroom they learn character, self love, and how to communicate their inner voice. They have big dreams and great aspirations. But, unfortunately, our supplies are sometimes limited, and though I try my best to help them achieve their goals, a little extra help by means of the necessary tools and resources needed will go a long way.
My classroom has some of the most dedicated and motivated art students I have the pleasure of teaching. My students are creative, innovative and full of passion and wonder. They love to create, explore and express themselves through the arts. However, sometimes, we need some basic classroom supplies that would just facilitate our learning. This year we will be painting, working with paper, and sculpting. For example, we are currently working on a paper project inspired by famous artist, Salvador Dali. This project is a very hands-on activity that required cutting and gluing and a lot of clean up. Unfortunately, our art classroom doesn't have a sink and the nearest bathroom to sanitize and wash hands is very far. So clean-up can be very challenging. In addition to that, not having water handy makes it difficult to disinfect hands, tables, and art tools in an adequate manner. Our school also doesn't have an established art budget, so many of our materials are dependent upon donations, grants, and recyclables. Many of our families are of low income and do not have the means to provide students with everything they need to get an adequate education. I try my best to provide them with a fun, engaging and meaningful art experience but I can't do it without a little bit of help from our art friends. Will you be our art friend and give the arts and our students a high five? Your donation will go a long way and our students will be very appreciative.
