My Students

I have a wonderful group of students coming back to join my classes in the Fall. They have taken my Photo and Film 1 & 2 classes and are ready for Photo and Film 3 & 4. My students are thoughtful, intelligent and reflective. Whenever a class project calls for a Public Service Announcement (PSA) such as our annual “Breast Cancer Awareness” PSA and “Domestic Violence Awareness Month” PSA, my students are eager to get the projects started. They're very much engaged and the final results just ooze creativity and intelligence! My students connect lessons to real life experiences and they’re hungry to educate the community about causes. On-the-ready, they are fearless and willing to accept new challenges. They call me their teacher but they teach things back TO ME that I wasn’t even aware of!

My Project

The supplies I'm requesting are for a wide-format ink jet printer I've had in class but rarely used because it requires 9-ink cartridges and they're priced at a premium ($65-75 each X 9). I won the printer in a photo contest ($1700 retail). I brought it to my class for my students to use. It did come with a limited ink supply, however, it was used up fairly quickly.

The project: Create public service ads through photography PSAs that will generate awareness in the local community about breast cancer prevention and treatment.

I find that with most of the projects I assign in class, students often share their finished work with friends via their social media accounts. But when you have a finished print to display in the school hallways and district office, it brings the project to life and the reaction from students when they see their work displayed is priceless! Thank you.
