My Students

I am a fourth-grade teacher in an inner-city school in Massachusetts. Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with 100% of our students receiving free breakfast and lunch. Our school is also one of the most ethnically diverse schools in the city where students speak a multitude of languages. As diverse as our students are economically and culturally, they are diverse in their academics.

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day.

Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekends, and our school also runs a food pantry for our families. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

My students create many great pieces of work in our classroom that they are very proud of. With the age of technology and increasing use of computers in the classroom, they are publishing their work on the computer more and more often.

My goal is to give my students the ability to print their published work so that it can be displayed for teachers and peers at school.

In doing so, each child will have a sense of pride in knowing that people are admiring their work and that it has true value.

These ink cartridges will allow this to happen in our classroom. With 24 students, we blow through ink rather quickly and it is not something that my school provides for us. We need your support so that we can continue to show others what we spend so much time working on every day!
