McCarthy Tezler is a school that serves the most significantly disabled students in Spartanburg County. This year, the school unveiled its new outdoor natural play, learning and sensory area. I came to visit the school shortly after the unveiling and captured this shot of Troy, a child in one of McCarthy Tezler's special education classrooms, exploring the big new slide on the playground.
Through Your Lens is a collaboration of The 21st Century School Fund, Critical Exposure, and Healthy Schools Campaign to raise awareness of the need to fund school buildings that support learning and provide a safe, healthy environment for students and teachers.
By sharing photos and stories of what they see every day at school, students and teachers provide us all with an honest window into today’s school buildings.
