My Students

My students are growing learners who need additional support to spark and ignite their curiosity and love of learning. Some have struggled within a typical classroom all of their educational careers. At my school, our team of teachers hopes to break that cycle by using engaging projects, innovative teaching, instructional technologies, and partnering with businesses to offer more authentic learning experiences. We hope to help our students become the future boost the area needs to open new businesses and bring new ideas to make it the booming beacon it once was.

My students have great potential to be the change our area needs.

However, we need to continue to challenge and enrich their learning environment. By having project-based learning as our main focus to try and re-engage and enrich their learning, we also need to meet their other demands. We need to foster within them to independently seek out challenges and persevere through them. We need to develop within them the ability to become lifelong learners. By offering a variety of opportunities, we can help these students become well-rounded individuals.

My Project

My students love art. Be it doodling in their notes, painting on walls, or having their own personal sketchbooks. Some have advocated to get a small drawing tablet on a teacher desktop. I have set up a student desktop that I would like to add a drawing tablet and appropriate software on to it. By getting a Wacom Tablet and Corel Painter/Photoshop Software, I believe these students will be able to get a better grasp on what to expect in art schools before getting to college.

By having the Wacom Tablet, Paintshop Pro, and Corel Painter, I believe finer techniques, passion, and interests can be developed in my students.

They have wonderful creative imaginations that I would love to see on the page or on the screen. Help them get the materials they need to see this happen.
