My Students

My students need a color printer, and extra toner for our teacher created games. We need new teacher-made games to customize student learning. We also need a pencil sharpener to sharpen those dull pencils we have!

I am in a high poverty area and our kids LOVE to learn!

We love to learn by playing games in our room, and many of the games that we play are ones that I have made myself. Each child learns at a different pace and they each have different skills they need to practice.

My Project

I need a printer so that I can give my students variety and a custom education. I can make games and activities that are tailored to each of my students' needs. My students love coming to school and will be even more successful if I am able to customize their education. Extra toner will help us stay up and running for a long time in the future. A pencil sharpener will help us stay focused and hard a t work. First graders are easily distracted and a dull pencil really drives us crazy! Help us stay sharp and focused.

With access to a quality printer I can provide materials to my students that are not only fun to use but that will last for more than one use.

Also, our new technology is not supported by the old printers we have in our school. Toner will allow us to make exactly what we need when we need it. Kids need pencils and we are constantly breaking our pencil, help us stay sharp!
