My Students

I work at a Title I school where all of the students receive free breakfast and free or reduced lunch. Most of our students are from very low-income families and therefore face many challenges and hardships of getting their needs met.

My students get excited about learning new things.

98% of the school population is Hispanic. Most of the students are enrolled in a dual language program. We also have an arts initiative program that gives our students live experiences and opportunities associated with the arts.

My Project

The ukulele donation will make a difference in my students' musical learning by building their self esteem and comfort level in the classroom. The students will learn to play immediately. They will learn to read chord symbols and play music from different cultures using the ukuleles. They will also learn to play current music of today, improvise, and even learn to create their own compositions using a few chords. The final assessment will be a special Ukulele performance at our annual multicultural program. I think these ukuleles will help build students’ confidence and increase their level of musical learning. They will learn to play their favorite song on day one.
