A document camera is a fantastic and much needed teaching tool. Lessons can be enhanced by the use of a document camera and students, especially those who need extra support, benefit greatly by being able to see projected images, work being modeled, problems being solved, etc. A document can aid in every subject taught by either modeling, providing a visual, or offering extra scaffolding for those who need it. There have been countless times this year when I have said, "This lesson would be so much better if I had a document camera!"

We live in a technological world that is only growing faster and more advanced and my students deserve the same opportunity as any other students to benefit from the use of technology in the classroom. My school has very little funding for supplies and is without funding for technology. To be granted the document camera would be such a gift!
