My Students

My high school students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically.

Access to professional podcasting gear will support their creativity and allow them to engage in the creation process with quality gear they would not otherwise have access to.

My Project

Podcasting is more than recording audio.

Audio podcast production will enhance learning in the areas of: writing, web and graphic design, audio production, social media marketing, communication, and research.

Access to podcast gear like the Rode Procaster Microphone and the accessories that support it along with the Zoom H6 portable digital audio recorder will provide my students with professional level podcasting equipment in my classroom and our school.

Students will also develop and explore creative and academic topics and they set out to create audio content about themselves, their school, and their community. This ongoing project has the potential to expose students to people they wouldn't otherwise speak with in the form of interviews.

We have a diverse community with many stories that should be told and shared with the world in the most authentic way possible.

This gear will prepare students for the world they are entering after graduation from high school.
