My Students

In my "classroom" there isn't a such thing as a typical day. I'm an Itinerant Arts teacher, I teach dance and service a different school every day and different classes within that day. I service Pre-K to 6th grade and mainstream special education students. If funded, this will reach 2,000 kids.

I am so fortunate to be able to educate through my passion for dance.

I have been a dance teacher for 10 years and have reached many students at many different schools. I am constantly looking for ways to update and improve my instruction. Technology is a great way to stay current.

My Project

I am requesting an iPad mini since it is more portable. With this, I plan to take part in webinars through the National Dance Educators Organization (NDEO). These webinars focus on the new National Core Arts standards. I will learn about the new standards through an in-depth look. This will help me design and develop new dance curriculum which I will teach to my students so they can keep up with 21st century dancers.

Donations will allow me to grow as a professional and serve my students in the best way possible.

I will be able to keep up with what is current in dance education and pass this along to my many students.

Grades 3-5
Nearly all students from low‑income households
