My Students

These literally are the most creative kids you will find! Yet, creative minds are rarely neat. My students push you to think, explain, teach in a multi-dimensional way. If not, they will run laps around you. And no one can afford to be behind the pack of junior high students this smart.

In their backpacks they carry the tools to paint, voice, dance, create a world that deserves to share their vision of art.

It is amazing what they can create!

My Project

Because creative minds are rarely neat... I am asking for heavy duty shelves that students can place their backpacks on before entering the science lab.

Imagine carrying a tray full on common acids and bases to your lab table and tripping over a backpack strap!

Two simple shelving units will solve that problem for years to come. Backpacks are placed on each other on a table meant for science experiments so as to make a safe environment for junior labs. Two shelving units will get backpacks with music and art supplies off the floor!
