My Students

I am a fourth grade teacher at an urban public elementary school in New York. All of our students receive free lunch. Many of our students are children with special needs that include fine motor and visual needs. Our Integrated Co-Teaching class (ICT) also has English as Second Language learners, and general education students. All of my diverse students are fun loving, wonderful children that are eager to learn. Our students are currently learning about nonfiction text features and research strategies.

My Project

What good is a printer if it doesn't have ink? Many of our students are children with special needs. We use technology and art to accommodate much of their learning. Please help us bring their writings to life with a simple gift of printer ink!

We have students with fine motor issues and can not write very quickly or with ease.

Having a working printer in the classroom will save time and frustration. We need ink for our classroom printer. With recent budget cuts, we haven't been able to purchase any ink. Many students don't have computers and printers at home so school is their only opportunity to practice word processing skills and print important information needed for learning. Our classroom printer is used by many teachers on our floor. Consequently, not having printer ink is affecting many teachers and students.

Having printer ink will help us tremendously as it is something we use daily.
