My Students

I teach at a Title I high school in a priority district. All of the students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My classroom is a mixed grade-level, as well as a mixed academic-level classroom.

Therefore, my class includes ELL's, special education students, a large range of academic abilities, and many students who come from a struggling economic environment. These struggles have led to an increase in failing classes and students not attending school. And, often when these students do attend, they are extremely disengaged.

Our students, like all students, deserve learning opportunities and access to information to help them become successful, contributing members of society. Our students are full of passion, energy, and excitement. They take pride in their successes, especially when overcoming obstacles. They always are very excited to try new technology but have extremely limited means to do so since most live around the poverty line. And, I take pride and joy in the challenge of finding ways to meet their personal needs to help them achieve.

My Project

My students are so excited to read the photography books in my class library, but the number of them is very limited. With these how-to photography books, my students will be engaged in reading at their levels. Making the jump from applying what they learn to hands-on photography work.

Offering the students books they know they can read and have a high interest in makes the progression from abstracted photography ideas to actual hands-on work manageable and fun.

Providing them with various beginning level photography books like "How To Create Stunning Digital Photography" will give them the confidence and stamina necessary for increasing their independent photography skill levels. Building a class of confident artists paves the way for future success.
