My Students

Anyone who knows me or Montgomery knows that we have amazing students! Seriously. Currently, I have several seniors that have early release, but they love journalism, newspaper, yearbook, and photography so much that they are staying for hours after school to work on their current projects! These kids put 110% in everything they do. They believe in helping others and following through on their commitments. I love them and wish I had a million dollars to give them everything they need to be successful.

My Project

At our school, I can honestly say, I have amazing kids. Some teachers don't call their students kids; however, I do. I love each and every one of them and wish that I could provide them with everything they need to be successful. Unfortunately, I cannot. I am hoping through DonorsChoose.org that I can provide them with quality cameras to help them take the perfect pictures.

I have asked for 2 Canon Rebel cameras.

These cameras will allow my students to take quality pictures on an everyday basis. I have some students that have their own cameras, but most of my students just use their phones for cameras. While phone cameras have advanced over the years, it limits the students' ability to publish their photos.

These cameras will be used in the following classes: journalism, photojournalism, yearbook, and newspaper. Thank you for your help in making my kids' dreams come true.
