My Students

Teachers often love it when the light bulb turns on in their students' minds. What I love about my students is the moment they find their voice in the classroom. This means they feel confident and comfortable to think and speak analytically with sound reason and evidence in front of their peers. What I love even more about my students is when they are able to write their thoughts down in a coherent, well-written essay. It may be tough at first, but with determination and scaffolding they succeed.

My students attend a charter high school.

Their mission and goal is to not only attend, but to compete in the top 100 universities in America. I teach seniors in AP English, rhetoric/composition, and speech. These courses are important because they teach my students how to find their voice both orally and in writing. These are specific and necessary skills to succeed in both college and in the workplace.

My Project

Our school is a small, humble campus with limited resources. Our staff of 30+ people must share one printer, which often times is not reliable for a variety of reasons. Having a document camera would ease the pressure of the need to save paper, benefit visual learners, and allow me to model effective writing techniques for my students. More specifically, what I love about the document camera is that I can display texts such as poems, essays, and short stories without having to make a gazillion copies for my 193 students. I can also show exemplary student work to the entire class as I pinpoint its strengths. Further, I can show warm-ups and exit tickets to instantly engage the students as they walk in and out of the classroom.

My students are deserving of the best I can give them.

I want to promote equal opportunity by supporting all learning styles, and having a document camera in my class will help me tremendously in achieving that goal.
