Printing With Pride

Help me give my students a printer to display their classroom projects with pride.

My Students

Have historically been the group of individuals that drew within the lines of a coloring book but never truly understood the big picture. As an educator in the Bronx with a population dominated by low-income households, I have learned that the families work hard to make the best with what they had with limited resources. At our high school, we work towards building them as better citizens, as well as, learners.

"Making something from almost nothing", a quote consistently brought up during a class period.

Although the class content is centered on mathematics, students are also developing their abilities to communicate and collaborate as a team. The students understand and have possibly witnessed what it means to have almost nothing. They need the motivation and the guidance to show them the direction necessary to run to be able to achieve their goals and build something new in their lives that they may have never thought possible.

My Project

Printers at schools have always been predominantly been used by educators and school staff. With the lack of resources at home, printers have not been the first priority. Some students can be seen in the mornings running around from educator to educator trying to pinpoint "who can print my assignment". A printer that is functional and consistently maintained by an educator would help our "Student Center" be a location with resources that impact and improve their ability to be a learner.

With a printer, the students will have more time and confidence in structuring their assignments through Google Classroom, sending them to our emails and having the assignments be displayed before they even enter the school the next day.

Through the usage of the printer outside of school hours, it will allow students to admire their ability to analyze, organize, and present information.
