Mrs. Raygoza from Watsonville CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need one digital camera to capture all the drama performances in our school!
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.
They like to move. They love to read, and they love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical."
From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
We need a digital camera to record all our performances during our spring and summer shows! We have a Drama teacher without a camera so we can’t record any of the performances. It’s important to be able to show our students their performance. In addition, we need to shared it with our parents. Many parents miss their performance due to work. At the end of the year they will be able to see all their children pictures as well as their shoes. It’s important to share those wonderful memories with our parent community. Our students need a camera to be able to show what they got!
