My Students

My eager students have been excited to start the school year! Although we’d rather be in class together, we’re all learning in the virtual world! We could use all the tools we can to help us be successful this year!

My Project

Having a document camera available to use during lessons will help my students learn at home, while being able to watch live teaching, or at least as close as we can get for now! By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement. Not being face-to-face is a huge challenge for many students. Having a document camera would help my students see what is being taught in a way that is as close as we can get to being in-person.
