I was introduced to Turning Point Academy (TPA) through Dr. Butler's Education Reform course. While working on a course project with TPA, I provided additional programs and resources for the school such as the Teen Radio Program in which I taught students podcasting and took a group of 8 students on a field trip to Carolina School of Broadcasting with teachers and staff. Additionally, I have taught Web Design courses and brought a professional photographer to the school to experience a live photo shoot and learn about photography. Outside of developing programming for the students, I have also volunteered at the following events to support the school:
