My Students

My students walk into the art room each week full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. The first thing they ask is, "What are we making today?" Their excitement makes me want to provide them with awesome art projects that they will love to create and be proud to share.

I teach at a Title I school where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch and our resources are limited.

Some of my students receive backpack food on the weekend, and many are refugees from other countries. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. For too many of my students, the art room is the only place they feel successful. I want to give them amazing opportunities that will help them see that learning can be fun!

My Project

We have a Maker Space Club at my title 1 school. Their favorite activities are STEM (or better yet -- STEAM) projects. We have a silhouette cutting machine that allows them to use the computer to design projects which it will then cut out. However, our limited supplies are an obstacle to many of the projects the students would like to create. Having mats, tools, transfer tape, and vinyl will allow them access to many more creative design options.

These materials will enhance my students' opportunity to explore the maker based education movement more fully.

I feel strongly that involvement in this extracurricular activity gives my students a sense of empowerment and resilience that is lacking in their regular school day, where many of them struggle. It helps to create flexible thinkers who are less afraid to fail and helps to promote collaborative skills.
