Empowering Students Through Digital Artistry

My students need three Samsung digital cameras to generate content for school videos, online and print publications, and community outreach possibilities.

My Students

You can't just give someone a creativity injection. You have to create an environment for curiosity and a way to encourage people and get the best out of them. Our students have the willingness to create; my goal is to help give them the environment and the support to do so.

Our students are creative, spontaneous and adventurous; they need an outlet for all this energy.

Many of them face struggles that are beyond comprehension. They are my superheroes. The strength they bring with them to school every day is the fuel which inspires me. With 100% of our students identifying as at risk for poverty, financial hardship and qualifying for free/reduced price lunch, the struggle is real. These students are eager and willing; they will bite at any opportunity to explore, create, and learn. Together, we can let them!

My Project

Students should be an integral part of the school and its success through partnership with other students, staff, parents, and the community. In order to achieve this goal, students must be empowered and taught how to effectively promote the school both internally and externally. Through my experiences, one of the most powerful tools we have is digital media.

My students need three Samsung digital cameras to generate content for school videos, online and print publications, and community outreach possibilities.

Through exposure to the digital arts, students will learn life-long habits that will allow them to become leaders in their fields. Students will create, maintain, and monitor an online presence, build strong oral and written communication skills, learn the value of interdependence and autonomy, and find success in creating a product that people are interested in engaging with.

The objective of our digital imaging and publication production class is an ambitious one. Figuratively speaking, we are giving the students the keys to the school. In addition to capturing and generating content for our online presence, students in this class will be tasked with engaging members of the community, staff, and other students in creating and implementing service projects, and giving tours of the school to important guests. Please consider giving to this ambitious project!
