My Students

I have LOTS of very enthusiastic students in my computer classes. We just moved into a bigger room with new computers. We need to get 11 more computer tables to finish setting up our new lab. The new tables are sturdier and safer for computers. We also need a RAID drive to store yearbook photos.

My students love computers and technology They want to make videos, create artwork, learn graphic design, learn animation, make digital music, design our yearbook, and learn to code and create games.

We have a great school with a supportive involved community. We are a Title 1 school with limited funding and it can be a struggle to get money to support our digital media program that means so much to so many students.

My Project

The new computer tables will let us complete our new lab so we can get rid of temporary tables that are all different heights and sizes and weren't designed for computers. The new tables give students plenty of room, include cable management to handle all the cables and wires, and will help create a safe, professional environment. Students will be able to use our Wacom tablets to create artwork and animation. They will also have room for 2-3 students to collaborate on one computer when working on video projects and yearbook. The RAID storage array will give us room to store photos for yearbook and video footage for our school video store. It will be fast enough to allow multiple students to access files they need simultaneously.

Your donation will help us finish creating our new home for the Digital Media program at our school.

For many of my students, this class is the highlight of their day where they get to be creative, problem-solve, and work on projects they care about with their friends and classmates. This is where students can explore animation, film making, photography, graphic design, coding, game design, digital music, and other areas of computers and technology that can lead to great career opportunities.
