My Students

Our high school is an urban school with approximately 2200 students. Different levels of socioeconomic backgrounds feed into this high school. By including diverse learning levels together, these students have the chance to learn in an academic culture where they experience differentiated instruction, and learn in an environment where expectations are set high. I am surprised every day how well these students work together when given the opportunity. Full of energy and enthusiasm, they are always looking for the next best thing in art, and in life.

My Project

Parent and child quality time is important to develop and strengthen strong bonds- something that will be important for the child throughout their entire lives in all relationships. This project will give parents and students the opportunity to bond during our Proud Parent Paint Night. While parents and students are often busy with work and school, this paint night will give everyone a chance to slow down to spend quality time together.

Once the project is funded, we will plan on inviting families to our Proud Parent Paint Night for dinner and a step-by-step painting session.

Students and their parents will sit side by side and create a masterpiece that they can proudly hang in their homes. The paintings will hopefully serve a reminder that family time is important, as well as a fond memory for participants.
