My Students

I teach in a low-income area where the students are energized for learning. What they lack materially, they are rich in, personality, perseverance, ​and performance. Being the first to pilot the gifted and talented classroom in their district is an honor they don't take lightly and are working hard to show was well deserved.

Colorful students need to color their writing.

In addition to keeping up with their regular studies, they are using their gifts to research and write nonfiction texts. They have opened up their worlds to more than just their neighborhood and are excited to share what they have learned with others.

My Project

Students are engaged in research about marine life. They are close reading, asking and answering deep questions and thinking of solutions to help marine life and the planet. A color printer allows them to share the knowledge they've gained in a creative and colorful way.

Help color their world with a color printer.

How else can they share the beauty of the coral reef without a color printer? Or highlight the dramatic difference when coral bleaching occurs. A color printer is necessary for them to use actual photographs in their informational texts. Help them, help readers enjoy the books they are working hard to produce, in color.
