Brewing Up Life Skills
With this grant, I am going to initiate a student-led Coffee Cart business in my self-contained classroom, which will self-sustain after the initial start-up. This project will provide my students with moderate to severe disabilities an amazing opportunity to hone social and life skills in a real world situation. Will the addition of a coffee cart help my students grow in multiple areas of need? I am positive it will! Although they struggle socially, my students want to connect with others and be a part of the school community. This project would give them the means to do that, while also giving them invaluable life skills for their futures.
