Crutcho Elementary School
Hart, MI
Class Information:
Room Number: Tech Lab
Students per Class: 258
Class Description:
I instruct preschool through eighth graders in several aspects of technology education. Using several different software programs while intergrating core curriculum.
Information Coordinator
I have been using my own digital camers, but they are nearly not enough to meet the needs of my students. These students are really in need of afterschool interest that will help keep them of the streets. I want to create a learning enviornment that is not classroom based but hands-on and allows for their own creativity in producing multimedia presentations and projects.
My Philosophy:
I believe all children can learn not matter what labels have been placed on them through their school years. Photography is a really good outlet to meet those needs and allow for individual creativity.
