My Students

As a teacher in a low-income district, I strive to provide my students with opportunities to grow academically, personally and above all creatively. While much attention is paid to the academic aspect of education, it is often the arts are neglected. Through your donations, I will be able to provide my students with an opportunity to get a glimpse into the art of photography while learning about Gordon Parks an influential African American photographer.

Twenty-four amazing personalities make up my classroom.

From athletic to creative all different aspects are represented in my gifted and talented classroom. Students in the gifted and talented program can put themselves under a lot of pressure to perform academically. It is my hope to inspire students with another avenue of personal expression that they may not have learned about or considered before.

My Project

My students will be spending time learning all about Gordon Parks, his life, his art and how he is an inspiration to people from all different walks of life. As we all know, it is not simply enough to study about an influential figure from history, you must practically apply what you learned in a meaningful context.

Students today think a picture is something simple, a funny moment captured on your cell phone quickly forgotten.

But those who have studied the art of photography understand that there can be a whole different level of meaning beyond the surface.

For this project, students will be tasked with taking pictures that represent their life in the hopes of conveying thematic messages similar to how Gordon Parks utilized photography to send his message. I hope the students will be able to develop a love of the art of photography through this project.
