Big Box Storage presents the Teacher of the Month!

Congratulations Teacher Hoyt from San Diego Cooperative Charter Schools Linda Vista.

Big Box Storage would like to recognize your hard work and passion in helping to shape our next generation of leaders, entrepreneurs, and artists. It's because of educators like you, these young minds flourish in the world and make it a better place.

From Teacher Hoyt:

"I am lucky enough to be a credentialed art teacher at a free public charter school. Our school is special because we are a project based school and a co-operative. I am one of the founding teachers. I have taught at my school for 14 years and because of this I have been able to build a thriving art program. But our families aren't wealthy and because of that our budget is tight. My students are very respectful of supplies and love new technologies.

My art program is different and unique because it is a choice based art program.

This looks different from traditional art programs because all the projects are based on student interest and projects are individualized based on what the child is into. Children are respected as artists and encouraged to be themselves.

Recently my school was able to update some of the technology in my classroom and my students have been in heaven! We are still in need of a quite a few things though. All the more tools, all the more magic we can make.

My classroom is different from traditional art room in that it is choice based art. This means kids are treated like artists and given the freedom to choose their favorite style of art they want to get good at. Students are expected to set personal goals for themselves in order to continuously grow and expand their artistic consciousness.

Currently I am asking for an iPad. I have a team of students interested in stop motion film making. I'd like to get them the technology they need to get going on this."

We are happy to assist with fulfilling your classes' need for an iPad, and encourage them to explore their creativity and have fun during the learning process. Big Box Storage invites you to submit their work so we can spotlight their talents across our social media. Thank you again for your efforts!
