My Students

My students are really lovely kids; hardworking, funny, and bright. They live in a very disadvantaged community, where resources are scarce and teachers have to work really hard to acquire supplies and plan enrichment activities.

My students do their best to comply with all that we require of them, which means a large amount of test prep and a small amount of recess.

As their teacher, I owe it to them to try to bring fun and creativity to our school year to the best of my abilities.

Many of my students have special needs, ranging from learning differences to emotional disturbances, and it's important to me to make learning fun and enjoyable for them.

My Project

My arts and crafts club is always looking for fun new activities, and these magic water bead kits are the perfect project. They require patience and attention to detail, and the pay off is great! Kids create adorable little 3D projects and fuse them together by simply spraying water on them. They can work on this with total independence and use their own originality and ingenuity to come up with amazing creations.

My students will love these projects and I'm so excited to see what they are able to create.

They work so hard all day on the core subjects and deserve a treat at the end of the day.
