My Students

Reopening our school, the first elementary school in Hemet, has been an adventure! We are a STEAM focused campus in one of the most challenging socioeconomic neighborhoods in our valley....but these kids want to learn! At least 75% of our students read below grade level and over 90% receive free or reduced-price lunch. However, they are hungry for knowledge of the world they live in and the world outside of their neighborhood. Help me to bring it to them!

Many of our students rarely venture outside of our city and yet we are preparing them to live in a global society.

I always use current events in my teaching and want my students to see themselves as part of a larger world! Technology offers opportunities to share in experiences across the globe and yet many students don't understand their place in the world.

My Project

Art has almost disappeared in upper elementary classrooms but in my third grade room, we still learn about artists and how they reflect the time and place that they live. Art supplies are not a high budget priority, especially in this digital world, but they would really allow my scholars to express themselves and the world around them.

I have artists waiting to come teach my scholars about color, shading, and technique however we just need quality supplies.

At the beginning of the year I teach a lesson, using crayons, on blending the primary colors. Most scholars have never explored art in this way and are so surprised at their results! Learning to blend and shade using quality watercolors takes this lesson to the next level. I plan to incorporate an art extension into geometry, science and history using these supplies.
