Mr. Brennan from Pascagoula MS is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Digital Camera To View A Digital World!

My students need the document camera to show their work to the whole class at one time. I can also show pictures from places my kids may never see in their lifetime.

My Students

"Mr. B, I saw a cardinal bird over the weekend". It's stunning to me how many things my students haven't seen. The camera allows them to see things they may never see otherwise.

My students are sponges.

Though they come from homes with very limited resources, they are surprisingly very curious. They want to know anything they don't already know. They also, love to teach their parents the "new stuff" they learn in my classroom. The truth is they often teach me too. We are a middle school in Mississippi that wants to be a larger part of the world. My students are leading me in achieving that objective.

My Project

With the camera, my students can show off their achievements, view things as a class they might not ever see individually, and bring additional resources into the classroom to boost our read comprehension and speed. As a donor you will have a part in changing a child's vision of the world as his/her neighborhood to the seven wonders of the world and beyond. You will be removing tunnel vision glasses and replacing them with panoramic viewers. We appreciate your support for our mission.

Imagine a child who no longer talks about the career he will have in sports or regrettably drug dealer, but as an archaeologist, historian, author, or chemist.

Imagine the community around him and the next generation using his example to compound his achievement. Imagine you were part of that change!
