My Students

We are 4th graders in a Title One school in a low-income, diverse community. Despite the many hardships and struggles my students bring with them each day they come to school excited and ready to learn.

Our classroom is full of thinkers and makers!

We are engineers, scientists, artists, mathematicians, musicians, inventors, and creators!

We need basic classroom supplies like colored pencils, crayons, markers, pencils, and paper to allow us to tinker and invent! We love going to our STEAM class each week but our supply order was never placed and we are running out of the basics.

We would appreciate your support in helping us fill our classroom with some art supplies so we can continue to be innovators and inventors!

My Project

To survive in today’s world, it’s imperative for students to become innovators able to think both critically and creatively. Engaging students’ strengths using art activities increases motivation and the probability of success. The hope is that employers will see how artists and designers can become innovative players in our global economy. Adding art to our STEAM class contributes to the development of essential skills like problem solving, and critical thinking. It also enhances a student's flexibility, adaptability, creativity, and innovation.

Help us put the "A" in STEAM and support our future engineers, architects, mathematicians, and scientists.

Donating to this project will put basic art supplies in the hands of students to help foster their creativity!
