My Students

My students come from a wonderfully diverse environment, most of them high-achieving and very hard workers. They love to excel and push themselves and they're so very inspiring to watch as they create and explore. Some students belong to the wonderful forensic science and performing arts magnet program, and others to the global studies magnet program. Because the school houses several magnet programs, many of our students are bused in from different areas within our metropolitan area, some from lower socioeconomic regions.

My students are always thinking, always moving.

Over 270 students enter my room on a weekly basis with purposeful intention and a desire to learn. Because of our highly motivated student population, they have consistently scored high on district and state assessments, keeping a prideful tradition of high achievement.

My Project

Our Art & Photography Club wants to create hand-bound photo books that will highlight their narrative photos in a unique and creative way. A Canon Selphy printer is perfect way for students to create their mini narrative books fast and easy!

Our photography students want simple, effective ways to print photos they take on their devices, and this printer allows them to see instant results while learning how color production works.

At the end of this project, some students will choose to display their books at our end-of-the-year student art show, making for an amazing interactive experience for our show visitors. Others will leave at the end of the year with a book that shows their experience and growth during the school year.
