My Students

I have a great group of 6 middle school boys and girls who not only have 6 very different personalities, but also a variety of disabilities. They are creative, determined, and over-all an amazing group of students. They work hard every single day to achieve new heights in academics and social skills.

My students inspire me everyday to be the best teacher for them and to learn new skills in order to better provide instruction for their variety of needs.

My Project

This colored ink will allow me to make reusable material in a way that represents the true color of the things being printed. My students learn better when things on paper can be represented as closely to their actual color as possible.

Printing in color is essential to making lasting materials that are functional as well as educational for my students with disabilities.

Printing in black and white makes it difficult to determine what you are looking at due to the lack of detail in the images, when using colored ink the images are more realistic leading to easier identification and manipulation.
