My Students

I teach PreK-12th grade art in a small rural school district. About 40% of the students qualify for free or reduced-priced lunch. Art classes in our district are designed to introduce a wide variety of media and let students make choices to work like real artists. I want them to have opportunities to explore media and find something they really connect with.

We are a rural school district where everyone really does seem to know everyone!

The students and staff give the school a very positive atmosphere. It really feels like a family! Everyone is welcoming and genuinely cares about each other, which makes teaching the students that much more enjoyable.

My Project

Most of our high school art classes are part of a Career and Technical Education pathway designed to show students possibilities for their future careers.

The students have expressed interest in learning more about photography so I'm seeking some equipment that will help integrate that into our curriculum.

My plan is to dedicate a couple Fridays a month as "Photo Friday". The photo box would be helpful for learning product photography which would work great in our Graphic Design classes. We could also use it to get good lighting for stop motion videos in Computer Graphics class and for photographing student artwork for their portfolios. The tripod would allow us to more easily use our tablets to photograph with the light box. The wireless remotes would be helpful for exploring different photography techniques with our digital cameras including self portraits and long exposures.
