My Students

My class is a small picture of the greater community that is a part of this proud old city. Many of my students are very economically challenged. Ninety percent of our student population receives free or reduced priced breakfast and lunch. Yet, my motley crew is a band of enthusiastic learners. They are dedicated to achieving their goals and finding solutions to these challenges.

Our class does an enormous amount of group work so, having art tools will provide greater opportunities for collaboration in our math and science classes.

To my shock, the school art supplies are very limited so, I don't have enough construction paper for my classroom. So, to add more complex issues, my desktop computers are ancient and we receive very little support to make STEAM a reality in class that we currently have. Now, we have no art resources for a complete class set or two sections of students. So, all of the expectations I have for having a better literature rich math and science class is in jeopardy. We need your assistance to make story problems easier and shareablely a reality for a class filled hungry creative minds.

My Project

Having art supplies, such as colored pencils, construction paper and poster board, will add color and clarity to our math projects and presentations. Our class of Padawans are always illustrating story problems and making booklets, backdrops and writing math stories. We need your help to make these future Jexi the colorful characters that will light our tomorrow with wonder and innovation. I know art develops the minds and hearts of our students with the options of having resources that are scarce. Like many other extra curricular classes, art is under funded with few to no modern equipment or traditional tools. That is precisely why my students need these supplies to add a positive hue to our math instruction.
