My Students

My high school students are extremely hard workers that come into the classroom eager to learn every single day. They excel when they are able to utilize technology to be creative and convey a message.

By giving my high school students the tools needed to produce exception videos, I know that I am utilizing technology and helping promote school-wide pride.

I continually strive to give them up-to-date resources each and every day, and they strive to give their best!

My Project

The Senior Video Editing class creates a school-wide weekly newscast to showcase student activities and promote school-wide positivity. The productions emphasize school projects and extracurricular activities of students of all ages.

Student videos contribute to a positive environment by promoting positive interactions among students.

The projects are upbeat, entertaining and engaging. Some past projects include anti-bullying videos and motivational clips, as well as showcasing art projects, band concerts, and sporting events. The students strive to represent the talents and abilities of a wide variety of students.

The use of video production in the classroom promotes creative thinking and visual creativity. The microphone and tripod dolly will aid the students in creating higher quality videos and allow them to video in various settings.
