The Earth Without ART Is Just EH

My Students

Teaching in a low-income school county, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. My goal is to find creative ways as well to keep the learning engaging for them. I want to reinforce what we do in class and show off their skills, but this can only be done with school supplies.

My students are creative, eager to learn, and imaginative.

They love hands-on learning and trying to go green with the limited amount of resources we have.

A lot of my students are raised in single family homes, just moved to the country, or can't afford the school basic needs. This has prevented them from building the structural knowledge they would need to excel and feel confident while learning. Some can't afford to even complete homework due to the lack of basic school supplies.

My classroom is a safe and fun place for the students to go. Most of the materials requested will allow my students to learn, as well as have fun things to do while learning. I am only helping them realize their full potential.

My Project

School is a place where the students are ready to come and learn. With now being in second grade, they are coming out of their shells and transitioning in an a well rounded learner. As an Art Integrated school, my students are want to show off their creativity but have a hard time without supplies. A lot of families are coming from another country and don't have much money to obtain the essential school supplies. I know having some stuff would be something they definitively would appreciate and show off the learner they blossomed into.

Showing off who they are as a learner creativity through AI is who my students are and want to be.

I'm requesting art supplies to work with, white board markers to help further their education in a GREEN SCHOOL, and board games (coding and comprehension) so the students can practice the skills taught to them through other means not technology.

Your help would easy the worry I have knowing I can't always accommodate to all my students. They also wouldn't feel like they can't achieve anything knowing they may not have school supplies at home. Your donation would help the students turn into wonderful writers in and out of the classroom.
