My Students

As an itinerant teacher in the Home Hospital Instructional Program, I teach some of the most vulnerable students in my community. I provide instruction to students in all grades, Pre-K through 13+, in all subject areas, from a variety of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, and whose lives may also be impacted by cognitive, physical, and emotional disabilities. In real terms what this means is that on any given day I can teach any subject from learning the names of letters and numbers, through Biology, and life skills.

Students who are assigned to my caseload have been diagnosed with either a catastrophic, chronic, or psychiatric illness which prevents the student from attending a regular school setting.

I provide instruction either in the student's home or the hospital, which requires that my "classroom" be mobile, as I travel across the county daily.

My students may suffer from illnesses such as Sickle-Cell Anemia and Asthma, potentially catastrophic conditions like organ transplants and cancer, or psychiatric diagnoses such as schizophrenia and depressive disorders.

In addition to the medical conditions which are central to the lives of my students, many of my students also have been identified with more commonly known disabilities.

My Project

These art materials will enable students, across age and grade levels, to express themselves academically and recreationally. They will also be able to demonstrate knowledge of the curriculum via art projects rather than the traditional pencil and paper assignments.

Students will be able to show the major events in a story, visually support their writing activities, important science concepts, and key ideas in the social science utilizing art materials to enhance their learning.

Additionally, students will have access to a variety of color mediums to express themselves so that they can relax, de-stress, and enjoy quiet time within the academic day.
