My Students

Most of my students come from a high poverty setting. All of my students want to learn and are happy to come to school most days. These students are engaged, motivated, and excited to see what accomplishments they will achieve in their school career. These students are raising the bar and changing the stereotype that is tagged to inner city students.

Our students are the future of the community.

As an arts-integrated school, my students need the proper supplies and resources to become well-rounded in their studies.

My Project

Our school strives to integrate the arts into every day learning. As a fine arts school, each student deserves the right to begin and enhance their creativity, even inside STEM and core classes. Our students will benefit more in their time at our school through receiving a well-rounded approach to education.

Every class should be an art class.

The ability of supplying my classroom with some of these art materials, including watercolors, construction paper, and markers, will only lead to well developed education. My students should have a chance to fully understand math concepts while creating and sharing their art.
