My Students

Have you ever had your child say, "Take a picture Mom, Dad!"? Well, I have 27 precious students who ask for me to take a picture of them learning on a daily basis. Most of the time I'll pull out my cell phone, but the picture quality is so bad we can't tell what the students were doing!

My students are eager to learn and love to show off what they know.

They beg me to take pictures of their inventions during science, projects they have created for reading, and patterns they have made in math. It makes their day when they see their picture on our class website or even when I grab my phone to take a picture. Imagine how powerful it would be if we had a classroom camera that not only I could use, but my students could use as well.

My Project

I believe in putting technology in my students' hands. With our own classroom camera, students would be able to use it for any memory they want to preserve. With 27 kids, it's hard to go around all day and take pictures with a low quality camera off of my phone!

Having a classroom camera will empower and motivate my students to work hard.

They will be able to know that their hard work will be documented, and that they can even be the ones to snap the pictures. You should see their faces light up when I reach into my pocket for my cell phone. Just imagine their precious smiles when they receive our classroom camera from you!
