My Students

My students are amazing. I really enjoy how thoughtful and kind they are to myself as well as to the students around them. They go out of their way to help with tasks in the art room and make my experience as a teacher more than worth it. They thoroughly enjoy the experience art class holds for them. It is an environment where creativity is encouraged, and they always rise to any challenge they are given! We appreciate your support in our classroom!

My Project

Stools in an art class allow more flexibility in the movements of my students. The current chairs we have are bulky, in need of a paint job, and do not allow for easy accessibility to and from their seats. The art room is an open environment where students may need to get supplies, wash their hands, put up supplies, etc.

Stools would allow students to have more space for expressing their creative thoughts.

They also ensure that little ones who can't always reach things can easily stand up to access supplies. Please take your time to donate and allow us to have these supplies in our classroom! We greatly appreciate all donations!

Thank you!
