Ms. Metzler from Oakland CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Printer Palooza!

My students need a drum for our laser printer that I scrounged for and repaired from the dumpster!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

We are six young adults with autism and one first year teacher all working as hard as we can to reach our IEP goals and be as fully included in the "mainstream" community as possible.

The students are so amazing and so talented, however, they often do not receive the resources they need in our cash-strapped public school because they are special needs.

A printer would make my students and myself so delighted because we could finally print our all our hard work we've done on Word and KidPIX etc. Also it would relieve the stress of having to explain every time someone tries to print something why the printer doesn't work.

You will make it not only possible for us to print but give us a necessary tool for us to reach our goals.
