My Students

Have you ever wondered what it's like to teach in a premier neighborhood Chicago Public High School full of diverse, inquisitive and delightful young people? Let me tell you, it's wonderful!

I look forward to school each day because my students are among the kindest teenagers I've ever taught.

Most of my students seek opportunities to take art classes as a way to balance their rigorous daily schedule and my department works tirelessly to promote creative problem solving through relevant and engaging curriculum. I wrote this project to improve the health of my art students and the cleanliness of my classroom studio space.

My Project

I'm requesting the basics like Purell Disinfectants, GOJO Hand cleaner, Scotch-brite pads and Oxo Scrub brushes to both clean and sanitize our art tables and sink on a regular basis. Our sink and tables are used daily by over 170 students and are constantly dirty following each project. It'd be so wonderful to provide my kids with proper cleaning supplies.

Soap and scrubbies go together like peanut butter and jelly in an art room.

In addition to maintaining a cleaner and healthier classroom environment, my students will gain independent life skills by learning to clean up after themselves and score some brownie points when they demonstrate these new skills at home.
