My Students

I am a performing arts teacher in a low-income district in Louisiana. Even though my students have many factors that make learning a challenge, they come to school each day ready and motivated to learn!

The goal I set for my Pre-K - 5th-grade students is to not only do exceptional work academically but to also exceed all my expectations artistically as well.

"Before a child talks they sing. Before they write they draw. As soon as they stand, they dance. Art is fundamental to human expression" - Phylicia Rashad

My students are eager, enthusiastic, and passionate about learning through the ARTS and love implementing it into their everyday curriculum. It makes their learning more fulfilling and engaging. My school provides a variety of supplies the students need to be successful academically, but materials that are needed for the ARTS are sometimes due to district budget cuts. I truly believe that the implementation of the ARTS is not only needed but is vital when teaching the whole child. Your neighborhood, ethnicity, and economic background may differ, but as a teacher with passion, I strive to provide my students with any advantage I can to help them achieve more.

My Project

Without a classroom printer, my students will not be able to print or safely display the creative ideas they have for our performing arts class!

Having a classroom printer will make it possible for my students to have the resources that are needed to make high-quality sets/backdrops, decorations, and props for the various productions the students perform in.

In addition to backdrop and set needs, having access to a printer in our classroom will allow me to print certificates and awards for my students as they achieve class goals. Having access to a printer in our classroom would make our class projects more creative and colorful.
