New Whiteboard

My students need a new and clean whiteboard. The one we have now is extremely dirty and dingy.

My Students

This is my first year teaching elementary students along with the high schoolers next door. My elementary kids are so eager to learn and full of excitement. When we were out of school for nine days due to the recent strikes here in West Virginia they were absolutely devastated. They get to come to art class just once a week. So for these kids that were 2 art sessions they had to miss out on. Since coming back they’ve done a sensational job showing off their art skills.

My Project

I use the board in my room for demonstration, especially for the younger grades. But the board I have now is near unusable as it is dark with crud and build up from years of use. It was hand painted with whiteboard paint, and I don’t think I’m going to be able to use it much longer. I believe because my classroom is technically the school stage (with one “wall” being the curtains drawn together) that the music teacher that used to use it had painted over a cork board. Because of this, the surface is uneven. This greatly reduces its effectiveness as a drawing surface. A new board will allow my students to actually see what I am modeling for them and prevent further confusion.
