My Students

My students are creative, excited, eager learners. Some come from neighborhoods that struggle with poverty and violence, others are second language learners, and some are gifted. Our school provides a safe place for all students to learn together and experience activities that will enrich their lives.

"The future belongs to young people with an education and the imagination to create." –President Barack Obama

Each day in the afternoon, I have the joy of teaching 1st/2nd graders art, music, or dance. What could be more wonderful!

My Project

Over a hundred 1st and 2nd graders pour out their creativity in my art/music classroom each week. The mobile drying rack will not only provide a place for their art masterpieces to dry but will conveniently allow me to move the artwork when needed.

Music brings joy to students of all backgrounds.

Whether it is experiencing classical music with activity scarves, using the wrist ribbons to dance to music from another country, or using Instruments from Around the World to experience new sounds and rhythms, music transforms learning into magical moments. The Outdoor Classroom Cart with Cover will house all these wonderful resources.

Music and Art open the undiscovered gifts of students.
