My Students

My student's work has gone well beyond paper, pencil, and tri-fold display boards. My media center is the heart of the school and we love to showcase student work. As a STEM magnet a lot of our student's work is digital and cannot be displayed without a display device.

Our students are primarily African American from low income households.

We have an exciting and active STEM magnet program which enables us to expose high risk students to a range of technical learning normally unavailable to this population. Our students are very active and community driven. We have created a school culture of inclusion and respect for all types of students. This is expressed in many different ways but some of the best examples are through the various "gallery" crawls and career conferences hosted in the media center.

My Project

These two display systems will be permanently mounted in the media center on two floor to ceiling 36" square pillars in the center of the media center. We will use these display centers to showcase student work samples such as digital posters, PowerPoint presentations, websites, movies, and podcasts. The library media center is the perfect location to showcase this work. Providing excellent student work examples to other students, teachers, and parents will serve to build the strength of our STEM program and our culture of learning. I believe the best way to encourage the growth of our students is by giving them a place to show-off to our entire community of stakeholders; parents, staff, students, and administrators.

As a library media specialist I have the perfect opportunity to continue to grow the feeling of community among our students; a sense of ownership in their learning; and feelings of pride in their accomplishments.

These display centers will add an essential missing piece to our ability to celebrate our students digital achievements.
