My Students

Anybody who has ever worked in a school can tell you how fast-paced the work day is. Teaching demands preparation, staying on your toes, and technology! Teachers rely heavily on being able to access reliable printers to prepare for lessons and make critical materials available to our students.

Students in Room 101 are disadvantaged, high poverty youth - who are extremely bright and motivated when provided with the right supports and encouragement.

All of my students participate in our free/reduced lunch and breakfast program. School is the place where most of my students have many of their basic needs met. Despite the challenges they face, they are happy, bright, and eager learners who come to school ready to learn!

My Project

These eager learners are ready for learning all day and they don't miss a beat! Having supporting materials ready and at my fingertips for every lesson of the day is crucial. Unfortunately, school printers are not always available or reliable. In a pinch, a classroom printer can play an important role in filling in where school printers can't get the job done. Additionally, a classroom printer can provide critical classroom materials. Many of my students have no access to books at home and a classroom printer can be a quick, inexpensive, and easy way to send my students home with reading materials. Moreover, school printers only print in black and white. Every once in a while, being able to print something in color can make the difference in creating a lesson that really wows and captivates my students' attention. Furthermore, color printing can allow us as a class to incorporate photography into the classroom - a powerful addition to our science explorations as one example.

This critical classroom printer will serve multiple functions in our classroom.

It will provide a crucial alternative resource when school printers are unavailable, a mechanism for sending kiddos home with reading materials, an outlet for creating engaging color printouts for lessons, and will provide Room 101 with the opportunity to deepen our learning with photography, where appropriate. This critical classroom printer will be a simple, but life-changing addition to Room 101!
