"We want to provide things that make life easier for our teachers. They work so hard for our kids - we want to take care of them."
The Eddins Elementary PTA in McKinney loves their teachers. When their staff came together and asked for a VariQuest Cutout Maker and Perfecta Poster Printer, PTA President Gwen Williams discovered the VariQuest products were a great investment for the campus. "When it's time to spend fundraising money, I look for two things: I want to make sure it's technology that will help Eddins stay on the cutting edge and I want to provide things that make life easier for our teachers. They work so hard for our kids - we want to take care of them."
The Eddins teachers saw the Cutout Maker and Perfecta Poster Printer in action at different campuses in the district and knew they would provide the ability to create anchor charts, bulletin boards and hands-on manipulatives, and would be a huge time-saver for teachers as well. The PTA got to work, provided the equipment after a successful fundraiser, and now both the teachers and PTA committees make use of the VariQuest tools. In 2016 they celebrated Hometown Heros, created a photo-booth for Donuts with Dads and are showing off student work. Way to go, Eddins!
