My Students

Our students are energetic, curious, and boundlessly creative! Time and time again, when given the spaces to display their creativity, they have excelled in their expression. Our students seek challenge, our students are hopeful, fearlessly empathic, excited to make and continue making, and ready to take on the world. I am incredibly humbled as their art teacher to see the creative process manifested in brilliant ways, in the classroom and the school.

Our South Boston school is a diverse, lively community of nearly 1000 students, each bringing a unique, illuminating perspective.

Our students are thoughtful to their community, incredibly aware of their potential in the world, and always looking to do more. Because most of our students have experience with economic hardship, this can often mean that they have done more, with less.

As an educator, I understand that one of my duties is to ensure that hardship, as a barrier to education, is a barrier I must seek to actively break down. As an arts educator, I understand that engaging in the arts, now more than ever, is imperative to our students' cognitive and social-emotional learning. It is then my responsibility to take action toward these two understandings.

My Project

When we went full remote last school year, we have learned much about what is necessary for students to have a high-quality education using technology. Our district has taken this into consideration, and has purchased new Chromebooks with touchscreens for our students. This move will help students navigate their school device in a manner that feels familiar to their knowledge-base, and will take into consideration our little ones who have yet to develop fluent typing skills. Having touchscreen Chromebooks alone, however, doesn't take into consideration all students navigating through art-making in a developmentally-appropriate manner, and using drawing programs with a trackpad has led to both frustration and anxiety in students as it pertains to work outcomes.

Using a stylus will bridge the motor skill gap between the knowledgeable student, and the limitations of their toolbox; Styluses feel natural to our students' art-making, and will break down a barrier to their creative process.
