My Students

My students are my pride and joy! We are a diverse group but, we are very much a class family. They enjoy go-noodle dancing, hands-on science and math, and absolutly love our Friday art day! Relationships are huge in our classroom. Students have learned to encourage and cheer each other on when trying new things. This gives each of them a great sense of safety. They come to school each day excited to learn and participate in new things!

Many students enter my classrom saying they do not know how to draw because it's too hard!

They lack confidence, and I want to provide the tools and encouragement they need to gain confidence.

Our school is located in Northwest Arkansas, which is the melting pot of many different cultures. As a teacher, I explore many different activities to let every student share and learn about each other. Each student enters kindergarten at a different level and my goal is to incorperate a variety of learning experiences that assists students to become life long learners.

My Project

"I want to! I just can't!." This is a common statement I hear from students entering kindergarten. It is my belief that each student possesses unique creativity and a desire to express themselves. When students have their own watercolor sets, they feel encouraged to take ownership of their work and are inspired

By donating to our watercolor sets, students will develop the confidence they need to engage in art that boosts their interest in creative writing.

This type of foundation will encourage students to become life-long writers, learners, and creators.
