My Students

Our school represents a large variety of students from various countries all over the world. One hundred percent of the students at my school receive free or reduced price lunch and we are a school wide recipient of Title I funds.

One of my favorite parts of my job is seeing the change that my students undergo over the course of the year.

I am fortunate enough to see kids develop ways to express kindness each and every day. They use manners that weren't present in August. I have seen students who loathe reading, turn into book lovers. A great part is hearing students say that math is their favorite subject because that was not true for me as a child. My classroom is full of faces and personalities that will impact our future world. As a teacher, I believe it is my job to do everything I can to make sure that impact will be a positive impact.

My Project

My students need a camera to document success on the field to promote success in the school building. Our school is in its FIRST year as a district participant in a cross country team. Our school is also in the beginning steps of creating an elementary level intramural basketball team for boys and girls to compete against peers at other schools. Our school has recently gone through major renovations and additions to our school and this camera would be used DAILY. Since the renovations have been completed, we've purchased a poster printer for large prints around our school.

With a nicer camera (than iPhone cameras), we could print pictures that encapsulate success so students do not only see their amazing work on the field and on the court, but also see each others successes on a daily basis at school.

By seeing that success, students performance will continue to improve during the games, and in the classroom, too. If you have been to The Ron Clark Academy, you can visualize our hallways! We are trying to encapsulate a family feel with pictures of families, students, staff, and "togetherness" through the walls of our school.

As a small school, a group of teachers work throughout the year on designing a yearbook that will be sent off for printing. This camera would be used in gathering photos of all grade levels and students to help them remember a great year when it comes to an end!

As you can see, this camera would be used for sporting events all throughout the school year. But its use wouldn't end there. It would continue to decorate the halls of our school with images representing the community involvement of our school and to provide pictures for the yearly photo book.
