My Students

Diverse, engaging, active, and curious; all of these words describe my classroom and students. I have a passion for watching these littlest learners embrace their learning through collaborative learning, technology, and good old-fashioned hard work. My school has a free and reduced-price lunch population of around 75%. These are families that are struggling to just put food on the table and heat their homes, so sometimes, learning is not the first priority. Working in a high-poverty school presents many challenges AND opportunities.

Many of our students come to school completely unprepared for the academic demands of Kindergarten.

Not only is there reading, writing, and math to conquer, but there is science, health, and yes, technology. Since many families can't even provide the minimal classroom supplies we request, it is highly unlikely that they have these same resources in their homes either, much less access to resources like the Internet and digital technology. And yet, children ARE technologically savvy due to their exposure to video games and Smartphones​, and we are constantly competing to keep their attention with new technologies and methods in the classroom.

My Project

Picassos with Pavloff allows students to create works of art much like the cookies and canvas activities you often see offered through community groups and private art studios. However, at our elementary school, these activities are offered at little to NO cost so that any child who wants to express their inner artist, can take part without finances being an issue.

For the past two years, Picassos with Pavloff has helped students to create hundreds of pieces of art and enriched the lives of all our elementary students.

Your support means that this program can continue throughout this school year and beyond and allow every child to foster their artistic talent.
