In Living Color!

My Students

The door to my classroom is the door to new and innovative experiences.

Students lovingly refer to my classroom as the "Think Tank".

I have been entrusted with the task of inspiring and growing future engineers, doctors, lawyers, nurses, teachers, business men and women, innovators, entrepreneurs, artists, inventors, and ambassadors. I teach identified gifted, talented, and high ability students.

My classroom is "home" to many. We learn, we laugh, we cry, we collaborate, we celebrate, we disagree. We learn that failure is part of learning, that sometimes there is no right answer, and sometimes, someone else's best is better than yours.

Students learn that life is a team sport and everyone has something valuable to contribute!

My Project

We are in desperate need of a color printer! My students compete in several competitions during the year in which we need to print items for posters and display boards. They also write thank you letters, interesting essays, and create historical art projects.

Students use the computer to create exciting projects in color, only to have them printed in a disappointing shade of gray.

From the editor of Insight.com, September 2017 - The Importance of Color Printing in Education

Students often report they engage better with color materials, which instinctively draw their attention and pique their interest. And it's no wonder: The Association for Talent Development reported that information is sent from the color center of the brain to the areas responsible for detecting motion, shapes, edges and transitions.

[Also],

Color printing ties in neatly with two major trends: The Maker Movement and Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) education.

Please kind donors, help us color our world!
