My Students

I work at a special education school, serving emotionally disturbed, learning disabled, and other special education classified students. Our students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Over 95% of the student body is eligible for free lunch, and more than 90% receive public assistance.

My students have exceptional abilities and with the proper accommodations and modifications, they truly thrive in our school setting.

These kids are afforded smaller classroom ratios, personalized attention, and a myriad of specially certified providers that assist in their overall development.

My Project

My students would love to have a school membership to Katonah Museum of Art for the duration of the school year. Membership includes unlimited visits to the museum, docent-led tours, and access to a host of educational programs & materials.

Field trips are so important because they bring classroom curricula to life, and give students the opportunity to enhance their social skills.

Katonah Museum of Art, through innovative exhibition and education programs, promotes the understanding and enjoyment of the visual arts for diverse audiences. The museum presents exhibitions that explore ideas about art, culture, and society - past and present.

The problem is that our school and families do not have money for many extracurricular opportunities. Most of our students live in foster homes, group homes, shelters, and low-income housing, so they cannot afford to pay for field trips on their own. We are hoping that the public will help us out. It would mean so much!
