My Students

Curious, enthusiastic, and creative; my students are eager to immerse themselves in any kind of challenge. They love coming to art, and using their creativity to create masterpieces. They are a joy to work with, and such incredible individuals.

Most of my students do come from low-income households, but my hope is that regardless of their background that they know in my classroom they are important, they matter, and their future is bright!

Thank you for your support, it means so much!

My Project

One of my dream items for my students is an industrial strength laminator machine. A lot of the time, when students take home their 2d artwork, it either gets damaged or lost with the rest of their things. If their artwork happened to be laminated, it has a much greater chance of survival not only in the transit home, but even extending its life span years into the future. My hope is to give my students the gift of preserving their artwork. Also, by taking such measure to preserve their artwork, it will add another dimension of its importance, and why it is to be valued. Will you consider partnering with me to help preserve my students’ artwork?
