What will students get out of art?
Students will leave my classroom with tools and knowledge that they will need to succeed throughout their lives. I very strongly want to close the achievement gap, and I believe that the art classroom can help facilitate that. I strive for equal opportunities in my classroom for growth, success, and access to an excellent education. Every child, no matter the background, has the ability to break barriers and reach new heights. I will provide an art education experience that allows for genuine, unique creative expression that elicits works of deeper meaning from my students. My teaching philosophy is based on a compassionate, empathetic teaching style while also including critique and diverse multicultural art history to create a community of inquiry and investigation. I wholeheartedly believe that there is no better way to benefit society than to teach, and I cannot wait for the opportunity to ensure success in our future generations.
- I want students to be able to formally analyze art to garner new perspectives of the world.
- Critique leads to students being able to look at multiple facets of their lives and things that they encounter and access it in a critical manner
- Students of all cognitive abilities and disabilities will be able fully to participate in every assignment.
- One-on-one guidance will be essential in promoting growth with all students.
- Students will feel included and welcome to share their thoughts and ideas without ridicule or retribution.
- Every student will be encouraged to participate and engage in activities.
- Grades will be based off of participation and effort rather than how “good” the art is.
- Students will have the opportunity to self-reflect after each project as well as critically analyze their own work.
- Curriculum will be developed to apply to real-life situations and promote enthusiasm in learning.
- I am the students biggest advocate. Students can always come to me for help.
