My Students

This class room is a hub of writing and creativity. The computer lab houses all of our schools Yearbook, Journalism, and Creative Writing classes.

Students are able to explore new worlds within themselves and the school through their publications.

They gain a sense of pride when ever they can construct something of their own and show it off to a larger audience. Their writing taps into something that they are passionate about and lets them explore and express themselves, but mostly it lets them know that they have a voice worth sharing.

My Project

My classroom has 42 feet of windows, and on sunny days the room becomes a greenhouse with unbearable temperatures. Students are frequently so uncomfortable that they can not focus on their work. The direct sunlight makes it difficult to see the images from our projector or even the monitors of their computers.

Our school is not air conditioned, renovations were cancelled, and a new building is years away from being planned.

This projects focuses on what can be done now. Avoiding direct sunlight will keep the classroom cooler and let the students focus on the work in front of them.
