Our college is a small, poor one, then there are particular things the people I was with and I just have to do without and others the people I was with and I deal with inferior products.
- For a long time I focused on getting things for the kids, then i pushed the college board to get me more books for the kids, college supplies and to outfit the classroom.
I fundraised to get current chairs, desks and even the college Heating, Ventilation, and A/C plan taken care of. I am consistently looking at improving the collegeing in our town. The newest thing I am toiling on is now sort of for me. The printing in our college is terrible; Every one of us have a small printer that hardly works anymore. It consistently wants ink or has a paper jam, and getting it to copy papers has consistently been a hassle, then what is poor is that there is no way to cut or laminate paper with it either. I have the old fashion cutter that is a wood block with a large blade! Anything that needs lamination is just out of luck. I want the college to seem more professional and do things less by hand. I have been pushing for us to get a current printer at every college board meeting; Unfortunately the people I was with and I don’t have the budget for the entire equipment. I want a commercial printer that can print, copy, laminate and cut papers. It is a bit extravagant. I did find a printing company that has a used one on their website. The used component is significantly cheaper and comes with a warranty. Now I am trying to get our fellow educators to pitch in on the equipment. Then the people I was with and I could all benefit from it once it is here.
