I have the honor of working with a group of determined, bright students eager to get the best education they can despite the obstacles they face. My students come from disadvantaged backgrounds - Latinx, Black and low income - and thus often do not have access to the same educational resources as other children. They come to school asking to do cool experiments and hands-on activities because they know how much more engaging learning is when they have access to those experiences.
I am requesting a color printer, ink and presentation paper. Learning chemistry as a class is difficult enough. Learning chemistry while returning to the classroom after nearly two years at home, is very difficult for most of my students who need that extra support and pop to get them through the day. Without adequate tools and funding, it is difficult for me to create that perfect blend of color and fun in the classroom that all students enjoy and never want to leave.
With your help, I will be able to purchase a color printer with ink for our classroom so that I can make our second home as colorful as possible.
With a color printer in my classroom, I will be able to add more color and personalization to everything I do in the classroom. It would mean my students receive notes, handouts, and materials in color instead of black and white.
Can you imagine how much more impactful a colored periodic table would be than a simple black and white one?! Or how much more they could remember and learn something that is easily seen as opposed to blurred and monochromatic? I would be able to do so much more with a colored printer than a black and white one. With your help, I know that my vision will become a reality! Thank you very much!
