My Students

I have 24 fun and energetic students who love to be in school. They love to explore and are really beginning to understand print concepts. We are a high needs school with a diverse group of fantastic students. Some are homeless and come to us with nothing. These students come from all different backgrounds and skill levels. These skills and backgrounds really help to create a unique and fun classroom.

My students love to learn about new things.

I believe they should have the opportunity to learn in the way they need to. They come to me hungry and many have never been in a classroom setting. They need engaging and fun materials along with the basic necessities to help them concentrate on learning. We would love to have ink and laminating sheets to help our work last longer.

My Project

We love to make memory books in the classroom, but often times run out of ink and laminating sheets. We use the ink to print out our covers and we use the laminating sheets to preserve our pages in the books for future years. It helps make the book last a lot longer and the students treasure their work.

The ink will be a valuable resource to help ensure my students can print out their books and have them for years to come.

I have many students who would love to share their work with loved ones, but paper become destroyed in little hands. The sheets will protect the hard work of each and every student to make sure they can have these books for years to come.
