My Students

I am now entering my 30th year of teaching, and I am as excited as a first-year teacher to meet my new group of 2nd graders. My students really get excited about the first day of school. I have always tried to make the classroom a special environment for them to call their second home. There are basic needs that my classroom cannot do without to make children feel relaxed and ready to be successful learners.

My students deserve the chance to get the best education that I can provide for them in a relaxed atmosphere that's organized, friendly and a place where they really want to come every day, having these basics supplies like notebooks, pencils, etc., will help them become better readers, writers and problem solvers.

With that being said, I have decided to reach out to for assistance in helping to create the best environment for my students.

My students come from an urban environment, and 100% of them are eligible to receive free lunch. Our school is primarily children who really want to learn, but the effects of being in low income house holds makes it difficult for parents to supply them with the basics.

My Project

Ink and toner are very expensive and is usually one of the first items, unfortunately, cut out of school budgets. My children love using their computers to create writing projects. Ink, unfortunately, doesn't last long.

When they see their writing printed out they are amazed of just how good their projects have become.

I am hoping that this ink/toner will last throughout the 2020 school year.

Technology and ink/toner go hand in hand, especially in the lower grades.

I want my students to be encouraged by not only their work, but the work of their classmates. Ink/toner are basics that will help encourage creativity.
