Essay exerpt from 2019....
Mrs. Tatiana Hernandez Pedrosa has been a Visual Arts Educator for 13years. She has inherited class sizes of 47 students every 50 minutes and a huge classroom with zero supplies. Fortunately, this wasn’t my first rodeo.
If gifted this funding, we would like to revive the ceramics elements but need our kiln inspected. Because I teach 250 students every day, we go through a lot of materials. Students are happy, challenged, growing, and learning. It’s not easy for us but we are chugging along. Please help us. Together we’ve tackled perspective drawing, paper-mache masks, 3-D weaving and soon—puppet-making. It’s my honor to work with them and provide them with materials that excite them.
