My Students

My students come from challenging environments where aggression is often the answer to many problems. Some of my students have home, community, and other issues. Some of them have trouble interacting appropriately with one another, teachers, and administrators. These students have sometimes gone through some type of trauma, a divorce, or been the victims of abuse or neglect. Our district is 100% free lunch for all students.

My students come from high crime and poverty-stricken areas.

Basic necessities are not often a given. My students often feel as if no one notices them or acknowledges their positive behavior only the negative. My students need multiple opportunities to learn and be successful in many different ways. Sports activities are a way to make a difference in your lives.

My Project

This project will help students be able to discuss their emotions in a positive way during group activities. My students will learn self expression by participating in an Arts feelings group. They will learn about different types of feelings and emotions and how to express them by using art. They will paint pictures to create another outlet for their feelings. Males and females are often told to keep their feelings to themselves. This will be a way that they can learn self-expression in a peaceful manner and not in a shameful way. The wire pieces will allow them to make usable art and discuss different emotions. The puzzles will allow them to design how they feel the world sees them. The craft items will allow them to design how they are feeling at a particular time and how that emotion looks to them or makes them feel.

If students learn self-expression and don't let their feelings build up this will allow them an outlet and time also to resolve any conflicts.

Thus making the world a safer place. They can do this is a comfortable setting with art. This project will encourage social emotional growth and development.
