My Students

The majority of our students are ninth graders and since we are an inner city school district, many are of low economic status and are not given the opportunities that most students get in other districts.

Many of my students come from households with both parents working multiple jobs.

Starting this year, our school receives 100% free or reduced-price lunch and breakfast. With this though students strive to better themselves both academically and as individuals. Through their interactions with others at school and their studies, they are gaining the background knowledge and new concepts to be productive members of society. Maintaining their buy-in and interest in school is vital to ensure their success in making good choices for themselves and their future.

My Project

Students use technology every day, yet do not take the time to think about nor understand how these programs work. This donation of materials will give students the opportunity of mapping their local topographic area in real-time. Currently, students utilize maps that are antiquated and not nearly as engaging.

The drone and GoPro in this donation will allow students to meet their academic goals.

This donation will not only help my students and classroom, but others at my school. I will be able to supply the history teacher on our team with the images and data collected so that the information can be used in a cross-curricular capacity. This would allow the students to have "ownership" and more meaning behind the data that will be utilized in multiple ways and in multiple classes.
