My Students

I am the librarian and teacher of a Title I school in the Mississippi Delta. Our student population is comprised of 7th and 8th graders who are primarily from low-income families. One hundred percent of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. Many of them struggle with the written word and read at levels below their grade level, but they all share a curious nature and a motivation to learn. And the more vividly the information is displayed, the more they are drawn to it! They are wildly creative, and their only limitation is a lack of the proper tools.

My Project

Our students desperately need a color printer for our library!

Classroom teachers effectively use technology by having students create digital presentations, but there are still times that hard copies of those presentations are required.

Our Journalism staff can boast the publication of a monthly school paper (thus far in black and white!) for the student body. And this year, our students will undertake the task of publishing the first school yearbook.

We are beyond proud of our students' hard work and take advantage of every opportunity to display it, and what better way is there to do that than by ensuring every design, every picture, and every aspect of their work is prominently displayed in full color! Having a color laser printer will be an asset for our library that not only will allow us to show everyone the quality work our students strive to achieve but will beautify our school and boost morale throughout. Students will be able to see what they have already accomplished and will strive to improve their skills in all subjects.
