My Students

My school campus sits in a working-class neighborhood where parents and families are striving to give their children a better education. They work hard to give their students the opportunities and skills needed to pursue a college education. My students hail from all over the world, from Mexico to the Middle East, making our campus both ethnically and socioeconomically diverse. This makes my job more challenging and rewarding as I strive to teach students who not only have different cultural backgrounds but come to kindergarten at vastly different academic levels.

I hope to give my kindergarten students a strong educational foundation as well as the grace, humility, and compassion to achieve their dreams.

My Project

My students will be doing Art History this spring learning about famous Artists like Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci and more!

Although many schools are cutting fine arts education in an attempt to save money, studies have shown this curriculum actually improves motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork!

Your donations could help bring much need fine arts supplies like watercolors, paint brunches, smocks, proper paper and more to a kindergarten classroom desperate to explore the messy world of art!

With pressure to raise test scores of all children, fine arts education is far too often pushed aside! Can you help bring back the magic of art to a kindergarten classroom?
