My Students

My students are energetic, enthusiastic, hilarious balls of excitement. Our school is near the bustling downtown center. Our school serves 90 percent low-income students of color, with a three percent population of homeless students.

My students are always ready to come to school and are fascinated with learning about the world around them.

I feel so lucky to be able to help my students along in their growth. Their joy for learning keeps be coming back everyday and keeps me persuing my work in education.

My Project

I am asking for art supplies to help my students grasp abstract Social Studies and Science learning in a concrete way.

Tell them, and they will forget; involve them and they will begin to understand; help them make it concrete, and their learning will last a lifetime.

My goal through this project is to help my students grasp ideas of history, timelines, natural processes, and principals of design. Students will study plants, animals through print and making models of our local region. They will study the history of people in their families through creating portraits and creating a new family heirloom.
