My Students

My students are strong, flexible, and collaborative young women /men who not only inspire me but will make an impact on the world. My students grow spiritually, emotionally, and physically throughout the year while participating in yoga, kickboxing, gymnastics, and other styles of fitness. Our school is diverse to its core, but that has not inhibited my students' ability to work together and achieve their goals. Their future is bright and filled with endless amazing possibilities. They are simply the best!

My Project

My students create collaborative group videos in their Fusion Fitness class with the use of an iPad and our classroom green screen wall. Unfortunately, creativity is limited because we use a makeshift stand to film the videos. Proper alignment and maintaining the iPad becomes a struggle when we use yoga blocks, a giant eraser, a crate, and two book holders. I am asking for a Padcaster to hold the iPads in place in order to create a seamless educational experience. Please look at the picture to see what our students are using now to make their videos.
