Mrs. Anderson from Byhalia MS is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Oh Snap! We need a camera!

My students need this camera for the Journalism and Yearbook clubs we have started. As of now, we only have access to cell phones for photography for the student paper and yearbook.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The students at Byhalia High live in a economically depressed area with over Over 90% of our student population falling below the poverty level. This brings many challenges into the classroom, including a lack of funding for quality materials.

My goal is to be able to provide them with access to technology that they cannot get outside of the school setting.

By providing this, they will be able to become proficient in the use of digital media in a society that so very heavily relies on it as well as explore creative outlets that can sometimes be the only thing they look forward to when they enter into the school setting.

My Project

For many of these kids, the classroom is the only time they have access to technology whatsoever. A DSLR camera is no exception to that. A cell phone photo can go a long way, but when trying to prepare students for careers in the creative arts, it just doesn't compete.

A camera would help our student led newspaper continue to grow and up the quality of our yearbook and editing club by allowing the students access to a quality camera.

A lot of our students show interest in the creative arts but because of budget cuts, we simply don't have access to high quality materials for them outside of our own teacher pockets. This project will be integral in continuing to grow the arts program at Byhalia High.
