Let Them Be Heard!

My students need wireless microphones in order to perform in the auditorium. They cannot have a successful performance without being heard and there are currently no microphones available in our auditorium.

My Students

"Can I bring my mom in, to show her my lighting project?" This question was the first of many "teaching moments" that solidified why I am happy to be educating South Carolina high school students in theater. In my district, my class is the first opportunity these students have to experience theater academically, and a lot of times recreationally.

Performance arts are invaluable disciplines that positively affect SAT scores, student self-esteem, and create real-world ready students.

My students are thirsty for theatrical experiences and opportunities to be on stage! They soak up every opportunity to learn and perform and I am so glad to be able to help them succeed!

My Project

Theater is a PERFORMING ART! I try to focus on that in my classroom. I give the students as many opportunities as I can to get them in front of a live audience. However, if we have to rent microphones every time we perform, I am not able to schedule as many opportunities as I would like!

Having our very own wireless microphones would allow them to perform more often and give me the opportunity to teach my sound unit with more hands-on activities.

My students in theater would love to be able to perform more often with the help of these microphones!
