Mr. Zungrone from Dolton IL is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Beautiful Boards Make Beautiful Hallways.

Help me give my students the ability to enjoy learning to use the Cricut Maker which will aid us in creating technically pleasing bulletin board displays that can be enjoyed for years to come.

My Students

Our junior high school is located in a low-income community. We teach in a school primarily populated with a diverse group of students from low-income families. But, as I enter the building and make my way up to my classroom that all becomes a distant memory. Once our students begin to fill the classrooms, I see nothing but potential and opportunities! I currently work with an amazing group of Junior High students, they are eager, energetic learners who enjoy learning new things.

I look forward to coming to work every day so I can experience the joy in their eyes as they learn new things, and maybe having some fun while they do it.

My Project

Normally I would take a picture of the hallways here at school but let it be said we could use some beautification.

A Cricut machine enables even beginners to automatically cut templates of shapes out of colorful materials.

This would allow us to experiment with the unit to create multicolored and technically pleasing displays. Cricut Maker quickly and accurately cuts hundreds of materials, from the most delicate paper and fabric to the tough stuff like matboard, leather, and balsa wood. Now your creative potential is exponential.

This machine will help all of us to be more creative in our beautified hallways and beautiful display boards.
