My Students

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” Dr. Seuss

My students come with various learning disabilities.

Their disabilities range from Autism, Asperger's, Speech & Language, FAS, TBI, ADHD, and Memory, however, they are the hardest working students I've ever had. Even when they begin to lose focus they're always trying their best. My students come from low economic households. Our school is a Title I school, where most students receive free school lunch.

We do not have the resources to provide all necessary materials, and it is difficult for their parents at times to send in their child's school supplies. I strive each day to make a difference in my students' lives and tell them how much I believe in them and how the world is a better place because they are in it!

My Project

Two years ago through Donors Choose my students were fortunate enough to receive an HP Color Printer for their Writing Center. We have been so hard at work being creative with our writing pieces, that we have run out of HP Black Ink and HP Color Ink cartridges. We use the ink to print our class newsletter each month, all of our published writing pieces and print photos to enhance our writing that is displayed on our bulletin boards. Even though we only use the printer for our final pieces or our finished products the cartridges just don't last long enough.

It would be so wonderful to have black and color cartridges again, then we could continue to be creative and make our writing pieces stand out and look awesome!

We need to continue working productively and creatively through our writing and having ink allows us to produce finish products that we are proud of!
