I teach fifth grade at a culturally diverse PK-8 school in the center of Portland, OR. Our school is built on a strong history of community.
We are an international baccalaureate (IB) school with a Mandarin dual-language immersion program.
We also have a unique partnership with local artists and Portland State University that houses a contemporary art museum within our school with an "unusual pairing between early education and internationally renowned artists and their work."
Fifth grade is such a pivotal year for students, and I am honored to be their teacher. So far this year, we have established a solid, inclusive classroom community of learners. It is amazing to see my students' growth (as learners and people in general) as they navigate their last elementary school year.
Having access to colored ink cartridges for our printer will support my students' learning with both day-to-day lessons as well as for larger projects and presentations. It might sound silly, but honestly, having assignments with images in color has shown improved engagement with my students. When the assignment is aesthetically pleasing, students have shown more effort and pride in their work. Also, being able to print-on-demand in our classroom and not have to run to copy machines has made lessons run smoothly. We also have upcoming projects and presentations that will need images printed in color. It is 2018, after all!
Having access to printing in color will better support my students and our classroom!
