My Students

"Every Child is an Artist" My students all want to be able to express themselves in the multiple ways that art allows. My students constantly want to learn new art methods and history.

Every Child Deserves Art!

My students come from all walks of life. We are a high poverty K-8 school in Philadelphia. My students have a passion for learning but have many obstacles to overcome both at home and in their neighborhood. Every day, we try to create an environment where they feel safe to explore their ideas and creativity. Part of creativity allows students to explore different mediums in art as well as 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional materials. STEAM allows students to use multiple curriculums in order to build and create using teamwork with others. Art is an excellent outlet for many of my students and really inspires students to be creative thinkers!

My Project

My students need more STEAM materials to add to our classroom so more students can enjoy these materials. My classroom is full of laughter and creativity. My students enjoy being able to build in various ways during our exploration days. Student imagination leads to incredible creativity.

My students will use these materials on a weekly basis.

Adding more materials to our room will allow for my students to be able to participate with their peers. Kindergarten will be able to use Legos in order to work together to build towns. Our magnetic building blocks will be used to create various activities. My students have competitions against each other to create cars, buildings, and other items. It is great to see students be able to take pride in what they are creating. New classroom rugs will be used to involve classroom reading and cross curricular activities!
