My Students

When I ask students to tell me about things they enjoy most about school, it all revolves around experiences and relationships. I am able to do that in the art room but that alone won't forge their future.

We need technology to be prepared for the 21st century.

Creativity and innovative skills are highly sought after in the job market today and will only continue to grow. We need up-to-date technology to keep the students moving forward in our technologically rich world. For so many, this growth happens in the art or music room.

Students this year will be able to take Advanced Placement Art for college credit. When I attended the training over summer, I realized even more so that my students will be at a disadvantage due to the lack of technology in my classroom.

Sadly, with all the cuts to education, art is always hit the hardest even though we know students who have art have better attendance, tend to graduate, and even score higher on standardized tests.

My Project

My students will now have the opportunity to take Advanced Placement Art for college credit! I am so excited to be able to give them this opportunity. The students are required to photograph, document and upload their work in process and at completion but we don't have any technology to do so! Having a keyboard to use with our new iPad would allow them to write and upload photos all in the same place. My students will be better prepared for college no matter what degree they are pursuing with the skills they will acquire with this use of technology. More important than ever, I want to give them the same opportunities students from full funded school districts are afforded.
