My Students

I am a kindergarten inclusion teacher. I have 18 delightful students, 6 girls and 12 boys. Five of my students have learning disabilities and/or health concerns that qualify them to be in the ESE program. four of my students speak another language as their first language, ESOL students. Several students come from one parent families or living with relatives. No matter what makes up their educational profile, their personalities shine through with such eagerness and anticipation for each day's lesson. We have made significant growth in our academics as a whole, but the amount of growth with our social skills and team building leaves me in awe of these amazing children. Each child in our classroom leaves smiling and with a feeling they have made a difference in someones day, whether it is my day or a friends.

My Project

John F. Kennedy’s once said, “I am certain that after the dust of centuries has passed over our cities, we too, will be remembered not for victories or defeats in battle or in politics, but for our contribution to the human spirit.” In fact, this is cut into the stone wall of the Kennedy Center — one of America’s bastions of art and culture. I believe one way to reach the human spirit is through art.

Our school lost its art program due to budget cuts.

I want to continue using art in my classroom. In order for this to successful, my class is in need of paint and supplies. Working in the arts can help my learners to develop creative problem-solving skills, especially those with learning disabilities. Teaching through the arts can present difficult concepts visually, making them easier to understand. Art instruction will help my students with the development of motor skills, language skills, social skills, decision-making, risk-taking, and inventiveness.

Through the use of the paint and visual arts, I can teach my learners about color, layout, perspective, and balance: all techniques that are necessary in presentations (visual, digital) of academic work they will need in the future.

Most importantly, integrating art with other disciplines reaches students who might not otherwise be engaged in classwork. With such a diverse group of students, I need art in my classroom more than ever.
