My Students

I am excited to share that I am a brand new fine arts teacher in northern California. I work at three schools in my rural town, including teaching art from a cart! I am need of art supplies to make my job possible!

I feel honored to teach 600 students fine arts in grades 1st thru 5th at two different schools in town.

I also teach mathematics to 64 students in 4th and 5th grade at a different school. Since I work at three schools, I have different needs at different sites. As a 22 year veteran teacher I have tons of experience teaching, but this is my first year as an art teacher so art supplies are needed.

My students are delightful, energetic, creative kids! They come from diverse backgrounds, including more than one-half of my population is considered low socioeconomic. I have students who joined my classes after the tragic Camp Fire in Paradise, CA. As an artist myself I love giving so many kids a wonderful art experience! I am passionate about my job, and I love to create art! I feel honored that I have the opportunity to teach so many amazing kids!

My Project

Help 600 students explore the wonderful world of art! Students will create beautiful masterpieces using mixed media. When students combine paint with oil pastels they are creating a resist application, and that is when the magic happens!

Students will see first hand that when using liquid watercolors they can watch the layering of colors come alive!

Students will be able to explore that when you put blue watercolor down and then combine a red layer on top you will get the secondary color of purple. Art will be so much fun! But I am need of supplies to make the magic happen!
