My students will enhance speaking skills and improve their ability to communicate and increase their confidence. They will gain skills as authors, illustrators, performers, and public speakers that will benefit them in the future. The students will use clip-on mies to record speeches and role playing. An important aspect of a good video is quality audio. The Garnica CVM-WS60 Combo Wireless Lapel Microphone will transmit to a single receiver, that supplies the audio to an iPad. This tool will aid them in the process of critiquing their speeches, posture, mannerisms, eye contact and speaking volume. Combined with a green screen application on the iPad, students will be able to create and record virtual field trips to different eras and locations in our nation’s history. Seeing and hearing themselves practice and rehearse a speech will give them confidence and a different perspective on the world.
I work with creative, curious, growing 5th graders. Our school is embedded in a mountainous community that goes out of its way to support each other in good times as well as bad times. Students live in an environment that embraces and encourages nature and the arts. Their appreciation of their surroundings is evident in all they do. However, funding for technology tools has not been a priority and the school overall is lacking in resources. We need your help.
Throughout the year, Faculty Insurance and local community leaders will be sponsoring and promoting funding efforts to help our educators meet their goals and dreams within their classrooms. Teachers and their projects will be selected throughout the year, and Faculty Insurance will launch community campaigns to help fund their projects. We want to let them know they are not alone and there is a community which stands behind them ready to help.

The Classroom Contributor mission is simple. Our teachers work hard, and most schools struggle to fund special programs that make the classroom experience special, so Faculty Insurance wants to help by funding projects that will stimulate creativity, educate on entrepreneurship, and teach financial literacy.
We’re all about finding ways to give back to the community, and are focused on doing that with our teachers. Our program is set up to support local businesses who help fund our Classroom Contributor initiatives, with the teachers and their students at the heart of the program.
How The Program Works:
It’s easy to apply. Just click on the button that applies to you, Teacher OR Business Partner, and fill out your information. Once your application is submitted, our team will review it and come back to you with an update.
The number of projects we can support will be determined by the local business support that comes in, so let’s get the word out about Classroom Contributor so that we can help make a difference in our classrooms.
