My Students

My students are hard working special needs students from a Title I school. These children come from all backgrounds and power through some of the hardest barriers imaginable. On top of the standard curriculum that all NYC students have to receive, these students have to work through a variety of setbacks they have and still manage to come out on top.

These children come from low income or struggling households excited to learn and ready to work.

Anything that they get to help them along the way will only help them through now and prepare for the future.

My Project

My students are from a Title I school. They all love the beautiful artwork they see and create to hang around the school. They love spending time to bring life to their work and creativity. They want to enhance the whole experience of having their work displayed everywhere they can. This Cricut machine will help me bring my students' work to life so they can display it on their notebooks and folders as well as art projects for the school and home.

Help us to make the classroom our own special world.

Having this machine will allow us to bring a special touch of uniqueness by creating our students' work to spring from the paper to the world. My students come from a Title I school, and do not have much to call their own. This machine will show them that no matter where you come from, everyone can create beauty and showcase their mind's​ eye.
