Back to Basics

My students need ink and paper so they can receive copies of all the learning materials they need.

My Students

Paper and ink are such basic office supplies that most us take them for granted. Please help bring these essential supplies to my classroom!

My students are an amazing group of tenth graders in Washington, DC.

They are part of a new generation of students who are changing perceptions of a school once associated with poverty, crime and dropouts. They are motivated to make honor roll - but I can't print out their progress reports to guide them to that goal! They want to read and analyze rigorous primary sources to prepare themselves for college-level work - but I can't make copies of these readings for all 150 of them! They want to take advantage of extracurricular and volunteer opportunities - but I can't print or copy forms to enroll them in these activities!

My Project

With your help, my students will have access to the documents they need at the click of a button. They can have instant access to their grades. They can hold a text in their hands, highlight it, underline it, and mark it up with insightful comments. They can conduct research and print their findings, then type up their papers and print them in a neat, professional final product.

Please help provide my students with these very basic supplies.

Ink and paper are the bread and butter of teaching and learning, yet teachers and students at my school are going without.
