My Students

Over 85 students come to my classroom in order to create, re-enact, perform, simulate, and do social studies. My students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and in total they speak over a dozen languages at home. As an educator, it is my hope to bring all of their unique perspectives out into the open. Through this exposure to diverse ideas and opinions, we are able to come together as a community.

When my students leave, I want them to walk away with an appreciation for all that the world has to offer.

It is through our shared experiences that we are able to come closer together as a class and community. We then are able to tackle problems previously thought impossible when working alone.

My Project

It is amazing what can be created by a room full of talented young minds! I am blown away every day by their curiosity and creativity! Yet, to create and learn the students need supplies. This project aims to make it easy for the students to access the supplies needed when learning. The toner is essential for copies and printing papers. Pencils are possibly one of the most important tools a student can have, yet many times students run out or are sharing supplies with siblings. That is why I am determined to always have pencils on hand for any student that needs one

Our classroom also seeks to incorporate painting into our learning through the use of acrylic paints.

Integrating the arts into our curriculum is a big part of what makes our school so special. This project will go a long way to making that a reality by supplying painting materials for all!
