We'd Be Tickled Pink, If We Had Some Ink!

My Students

Color me this, color me that! We need some ink and that's a fact!

My students are all English Language Learners who attend a high poverty public school district.

More than 70% of the students receive a free or reduced rate lunch. Many of them come from single family homes. Some are separated from a parent or parents who are still in their home country. They have many needs and face many challenges. Yet I have provided them with a warm environment where they can feel free to take risks. Because of this, they love coming to school and work hard for me.

My Project

Our printer is one of the hardest working resources in our classroom. Because of this we are almost out of ink. My students work hard on their writing pieces, and love going on the computers and print their work out. Once printed we hang them up for display. I love to see the smiles on their faces when their work is on the bulletin boards or in the hallway. I would love to continue to have the ability to print out their work, all we need is some ink!

Nothing can compare to the sense of pride my students feel when they see their hard work displayed in the classroom or the hallway.

The ability to continue to print out their work hinges on getting ink. My students would be tickled PINK, if they only had some ink!
