Jonathan's Story

My passion is making money.

Well my grandmother once told me that a man always needs to have some money in his wallet so I always make sure that I have some money on me. After watching a lot of men in my life struggle I've vowed never to end up in the same situations as they did. Hints my passion to make money and become successful. My desire is to give back to my community and to help the people who are struggling around me. Another one of my passions is helping people and with money I can make that happen.

The iD Tech Camp can help me accomplish my goal by teaching me more about computers and technology and with this knowledge I can pursue my dream of working within the field of technology. This program hopefully will be insightful and very productive. Also it will give me credits which can help me get into college. Hopefully I can get a scholarship of some sort for computer science and technology and in the end I will be able to thank the iD Tech Camp for all their help and support.

A Note from Mrs. Johnstone, Jonathan's Teacher

Jonathan Piper has a passion for learning. I think it was his grandmother who was an educator. He is rich in experience and he has a family that supports his efforts to leverage his education, and he's just a lifelong learner.

He has the mind of an engineer. His science fair project involved resurrecting a solar panel that needed to be rewired in order to power a phone charger. It was a struggle, but he was tenacious.

We were a pilot school for the Next Generation Science Standards last year, so we did a lot of modeling in our notebooks. He had to make a musical instrument, but not just one that made noise. I had to produce notes that could be identified when played into a guitar tuner.

He's great with this stuff, and patient with the iterative process of engineering design - testing and revision.
