Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

I work in a Title I, poverty stricken school in Richmond, with every student receiving free breakfast, lunch and an overnight bag of food to take home daily. With a high transient student population, my students are still very eager to learn despite their economic situation. Each morning when I wake up I realize I have chosen the right profession! I have the pleasure of educating and shaping the lives of some pretty amazing little people.

I am the ambassador for making them life long global learners and I want to know that when my students leave me and go into the real world, they will be technologically savvy!

My Project

Recently, we were blessed to receive a 3D Printer. This printer has been the highlight of our classroom with more and more students crafting up ideas to print. Unfortunately, I did not realize the filament would not last forever. Or for even a month with all of these imaginative souls.

These creative minds are constantly in motion.

My students have had idea after idea of 3 dimensional objects they want to create. As a teacher, I also want to ensure they have the stickers and removal tools on hand.

The lack of filament has been an unexpected lesson in supply and demand for us. We have had to stifle some of the awesome ideas until we can get more filament. I know that once we get some more filament, the idea train will be back on track.
