My Students

These students are some of the cream of the crop for our 8th graders who excel in writing and talking to people. They are a great group of kids who have shown me over the last two years that they are very creative and hard workers.

I have worked with some of these students their entire middle school education and want them to have every chance of success and growth.

I hope this project, and the work we do this year, will give them that.

My Project

We are starting a new journalism class this year which will include creating a school newspaper and work on creating the yearbook. We need a Nikon DSLR camera for yearbook and a school newspaper. This camera will be used to get the high quality pictures we need and teach the students photography skills.

I want the students to have ownership in their memories for the year as they create the yearbook.

This is a first for our school, since I have been doing the yearbook work myself the past two years with my own equipment. It is a new elective to give these students skills they would not normally have until high school or college.
