My Students

Our high school in Florida is one of only five schools that offers a Criminal Justice Program. We currently have around three hundred students within the program, and it is a four-year academy. Our school is in a rural area and more than half of our students are from low-income households.

Students in the Criminal Justice Program are future leaders within our communities.

They are taught to display honesty, loyalty, and integrity within their daily lives and strive to be the leaders of our school. Our class motto is "Character is what you do when others are not looking."

My Project

I teach a four year program about Criminal Justice. Throughout our program, I video students completing real world scenarios that they are tasked with completing. Our scenarios are working crime scenes, discovering and collecting finger prints, working blood evidence and blood spatter, and "Shoot, Don't Shoot" scenarios that puts them in real-world police calls. I have countless hours of my students from their freshman year all the way to their senior year. I would like to teach my students how to edit their videos with the requested software, and allow them to make a movie of their time spent in Criminal Justice. I have talked to many law enforcement recruiters that said this would be a great idea for my students to submit with their resumes.

Getting students out of their seats and into the field helps them to learn at a much faster rate and can teach them how to deal with real world issues.
