My Students

As a rural school, my students are so fortunate to be in a district the finds ways to expose them to unique and exciting opportunities such as this. Our school strives to expose them to cutting-edge educational opportunities.

We are the first K-12 STEM school in the state of Ohio!

Despite the hurdles they face students see a challenge and want to tackle it!

For many of my students, this is the first and maybe only experience with a camera. I want to give them this opportunity.

My Project

For the first time ever, my district has approved a High School Photography Course. Because of that, we need all of the equipment necessary to make this happen! That means we will need as many cameras as we can get! I'm expecting to have a total of 32 students over the course of 2 semesters and the more I can get a 1 to 1 camera ratio, the more my students will have hands on experience.

That's where you come in!

We'd love for you to partner with us to help make this class a reality. I taught a very basic photography course at the middle school, but my high school students want as well and they want it bad. I am hoping to create this opportunity for them. By partnering with my students, you can help me give them this opportunity. For some, they may find that it's not only their passion, but maybe a future career.
