My Students

I teach Kindergarten and I love my day. We use our printer all the time to print activities. We now have to use our black printer which is very dull. I would love to be able to print in color and make learning fun. "Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world." - Mandela

They are born into poverty but they are the sweetest kids I know.

They soak up everything and want to learn so badly. Their parents don't work with them at home so I am mom, grandma, doctor, psychiatrist, and all of the above. Our school is the same through grade 5. We try to help our students by supplying as much for them as we can. We just used our Title I money to purchase school supplies so the parents weren't burdened with the thought of not being able to provide for their kids. It has been a great help. We have some parents that want to be involved and others who could care less. I love my students and want the best for them. A color printer is just a start. I would love to give them the world but one day at a time.

My Project

A Brother all-in-one color printer will help my students have more advanced work and center activities. Students love color in our room and I want to brighten up their day by being able to print a page in color. I am always printing posters and activities in color but I have to go outside of our class to get resources. Currently, we have only a black and white printer in our room. A color printer will show parents bright newsletters, snack calendars, notices and student work. I would love to have my own printer in color so I can make some really fun activities for the kids.

By having a color printer my students will be able to see in color and not just in black and white.

I love to print centers and posters in color and so far I have had to pay for it out of pocket by going to UPS or printing from home. This printer will help my students with letters and numbers because they can see everything in color.
