My students need a laser printer and toner for writing and other classroom projects.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are eager to learn more through projects and writing assignments. Their home environment does not dictate their success in the classroom. When their assignments are complete they are excited to share with me and their classmates, however, we lack devices to print their work on.
I work in a Title 1 school, which has 75% of it's students at a poverty level.
I have a diverse classroom full of 24 inquisitive students. I am the general education teacher in an inclusion classroom, working with 9 special education students. The classroom also has 21 English Language Learners, encompassing languages from 7 different countries.
We are using devices and computers on a more regular basis in the classroom, building confidence with technology. The students will use the printer to print their produced work. Currently the students are not able to print their work consistently. With the printer the students will have access to their work and resources for their projects.
In this classroom students are constantly wanting to share about their cultures and working with others, having a printer will allow the students to share their work with more than just their classmates.
Their printed work can be displayed in the school and they can also bring it home to share with their families and friends. It will show them that the work they are doing, no matter what level they are at, is important. It will build their confidence and make them proud of their work.
