My Students

It's been said that "Life is like a camera...focus on what's important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don't work out, take another shot." Please help my students learn about themselves, life, and their potential to impact the world around them.

My 6th-8th grade Yearbook students attend our K-8 charter school in the suburban Detroit area.

They are highly motivated to help ALL of our students remember the great year they've had. They are the leaders of our school and take it seriously, and have fun helping each other learn and grow in their photography and editing skills. This is our first year having a yearbook club and we are looking to have it become a continuing tradition.

My Project

My yearbook students are growing in their knowledge of business interactions, photography, and editing. We would love to have a camera at school at all times so that when a picture-taking opportunity arises, we can capture it! Our student code of conduct does not allow students to have personal technology with them at school, so having a camera that is dedicated to yearbook will allow them to respect the rules, and be effective at the same time. Each student is responsible for getting candid photographs for at least 1 classroom, which offers them an opportunity to interact with a teacher and classroom they may not be familiar with. This is invaluable experience for them. My yearbook students will use this camera to capture the moments that will become memories for their fellow students. Having a yearbook camera at school all the time will make it more efficient for the students to get pictures when their schedule allows.

My students will use this equipment to focus in on what is important: learning, relationships, and helping others.

Please help us focus on the positive, capture every moment, and develop from the negatives!
