My Students

Our school serves PreK-8th graders in Pinetown, NC. We are a tight knit school of diverse learners trying to keep up with the digital times.

We are always looking for new exciting adventures for our students, this year we would like to work on a school news production crew.

Our school serves almost 500 students in a rural part of Beaufort County, North Carolina. We are a Title I school with more than 70% of our students being below the poverty line.

My Project

With the materials included, we can create high definition video projects to share what is going on with staff and students. Also we can integrate this into learning projects, to show understanding. Also, with this equipment we can help students feel the love of digital editing which would take them great places in life.

With being surrounded by digital elements, they have a natural curiosity of how it is produced.

This set up along with our tripods and green screen we will get otherwise, will pull it all together to be able to share the excitement of production to hopefully incite and inform about career choices.
