My Students

Students in my Design class are filled with amazing ideas: podcasts, blogs, and flyer's all of which need physical advertisements around school. Their love of design is matched only by their creativity. With a color printer students will have the opportunity to add a new dimension to their ideas.

Our school is the only urban IB school in the country and we love our uniqueness so very much.

My students are young experimenters in many medias. They decide on an idea and guide themselves into their own uncharted, creative waters. They are all excellent students and all work harder than a pit crew on race day! My students are self-motivated and love exploring everything around them. No figurative or literal stone is left unturned which helps to enrich and strengthen their life long love of learning as well as caring.

My Project

We need a Color Inkjet printer and ink to help cultivate a warm and welcoming community focused on informing all of those in school of all school activities. My students will use these materials to help them actualize with more precision their creative designs. With a color printer and ink my students will no longer be stifled by black and white photos of gators and/or pictures of sunny days but rather be able to create their masterpieces using the full spectrum of colors in order for them to create to their exact specifications. A color printer will allow our students to create flyer's and advertisements for during/after school events which will only aid in cultivating our school's image and ideals.

So many ideas get shot down by the creator because they do not want to stifle their own color rich designs and ideas just because they do not have a color printer.

My students will use the color printer to create so many wonderful projects which they themselves will be the creators of. If a student creates their own project and gets to hold an exact physical copy of their dream in their hands that would be amazing and make it all worthwhile.
