I'm a Special Education teacher and literacy coach supporting teachers and students in kindergarten, first, and second grade in two different elementary schools in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Both schools are Title I schools, and the majority of the students I support receive free breakfast and lunch.
The neighborhood my schools are located in contains one of New York City's largest public housing developments, and most of my students reside there.
Due to the geographic location of the neighborhood, there are few trains and bus routes servicing the community, so my students are very isolated from all of the bells and whistles of New York City.
I am requesting a color printer, toner, and paper. The students I work with will use this printer to create hard copies of pieces of writing they have been working on. They also will print out pages they find while searching the Internet for information on specific topics they want to learn more about. Additionally, I will use this printer to generate worksheets for my students and resources--like labels, lesson plans, graphic organizers, etc.--for the kindergarten, first, and second grade teachers I support.
Without a printer, my students and I simply can't print out our work!
At times I am able to save some of their work, print it out at home, and bring it in the next day. But it's 2019! Every teacher and student should have a working printer at their fingertips!
I am requesting a very efficient classroom printer to cover all of our printing needs this upcoming school year and hopefully into the next school year. Thank you so much for your support!
