Sometimes, Your Lessons Just Need Some Color!

My students need a printer.

My Students

I don't have a printer at home. We have our computers at school hooked up to our copier, but that only prints in B&W. I print reports for my students, but they are left with monochromatic pages. I want all my students to be able to create bold projects.

My students come from all over the a great historic city in PA.

The city is rich in history and they have no idea... so I tell them all about it. Many of my students do not have computers or printers at home but I try to expose them to technology. Giving them the ability to print their creations in color could help them see their work in a new way.

My Project

I am looking to get a color printer for my classroom to print projects and reports for my students. Their creations will be able to show on paper they way they do in their imaginations. Simple things like PowerPoint presentations or photos of famous inventors will make their work stand out.

This will give me the ability to give the students a literal outlet for their work.

After putting their fullest effort into something, they should be able to hold it in their hand and be proud, not disappointed.
