Mrs. Doherty from South Elgin IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Immediate Gratification & Pride! Right There, Right NOW!

Help me give my students access to HP PageWide Pro 452DW Wireless Single-Function Color Inkjet Printer and supply of ink for my classroom so we don't have to share two color printers with 800 other students.

My Students

Learning about ourselves and other cultures is exciting. I have great diversity of cultures among my classes that help enhance our Social Studies classroom. I am fortunate enough to have a computer cart in my classroom that allows my students to have access to a computer in order to research information and create projects. I prefer project based assessments as the students learn and experience so much more than memorizing facts.

My goal for my students is to bring out their creativity, to encourage them to think outside the box, and to stand out among the crowd.

My motto: "Creativity is Intelligence having fun" Albert Einstein

My Project

Right now, our school has 2 color printers for 1000 students to use. As a Social Studies teacher, I believe in project based learning. This year, I now have enough computers in my classroom for my students. But after creating some of our projects, I need to reserve the computer lab so the students may print out pictures and projects. It disrupts the learning environment.

I would love to have a wireless color printer in my classroom so my students' creativity is not stifled .

This printer would save us so much time, no more sharing with 800 other students...
