I started as the art teacher for special education students at Wallace Elementary School in the summer of 2021 and will continue through 2023. My students range from pre-k through 5th grade. It has been incredibly rewarding and challenging artistically. If the art projects are too simple the students will be finished in five minutes, but if they are too complex or the paper pieces are too small, they cannot complete the task. Some of my students are autistic and it’s through guidance and consistency that they are learning and growing.
Below is a gallery showing some of the art projects we have done together with many more on the way. These are my designs and I pre-cut the paper pieces ahead of the classes.
