My Students

I teach art to over 700 kids in grades K-5th every week. The students at my school come from a variety of backgrounds and ethnicities. We have students from many different countries. Many don't speak English and are economically disadvantaged. Despite this my students come to class eager and ready to learn.

My students are passionate about art and science.

They love using their imagination and creativity to come up with original and unique projects. Art also provides them the opportunity to learn more about themselves and make the world a more beautiful place.

My Project

Hurricane Harvey hit our community hard. No one escaped without significant damage to their homes or property. Many think after a hurricanes hits that the recovery is fast. This can not be further from the truth. Recovery takes years and requires resources that many in our community lack. The federal government also helped few of any in our area. Many of our students are still displaced and waiting to rebuild. Despite this my students come to school eager to learn about robotics and coding. In our after school robotics. program we only have one programming brick. This makes it very difficult for my 30 students to be able to learn and build when they have to share everything.

My students need two robotics bricks in order to build and program their own Lego creations.

These bricks are central to the coding and engineering process; without them my students cannot program their bots.

Having just two more bricks will help me split my kids into groups and let them work together to design and build extraordinary robots!
