Years of experience
Students this year
My name is Ana Nieves Patterson. I am a third grade teacher in North Long Beach. I have been teaching for over 22 years. I love what I do. I feel blessed to be able to do what I love for a living. Our school is located in a low Income area. Our kids are so appreciative of everything you give them.
How will funding help my students?
I work at an inner city school in north Long Beach. I try to make learning a fun experience. I find students love arts and crafts. Schools provide basic art supplies and little to no craft supplies.
Students love arts and crafts. Arts and crafts are great incentives, they inspire creativity and innovation that spills over to other curriculur activities. Arts and crafts relief stress, put smiles on children's faces, and bring joy to their hearts.
I find myself buying craft and art supplies with my own money that total hundreds of dollars yearly. I would appreciate any support towards this goal.
