My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

Many of my students are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status.

These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as typical.

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experiences during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Teachers always try to give students the opportunity to incorporate art into their work time every day and in order to do this, we need materials! Bulletin boards are awesome ways for my students to decorate in order to show us what they've learned. We also need bulletin board materials in order to keep our classroom and hallway bulletin boards looking beautiful and fresh. Our administration loves it when we can change these up regularly, usually every couple of months, but we have very limited materials such as bulletin board paper and border. Having the resources to do fun art-inspired projects while also keeping our building beautiful will help us maintain a positive school environment that is welcoming and feels safe for students!
