My Students

My students are part of the Adaptive Curriculum program at a local inner city school. You would have a hard time finding a group of high school students that are as happy to be here as my kids are. They come off the bus smiling, excited and so very eager. "Morning, Ms. M.! What are we learning today!?" is my standard greeting. Each one of my students learns in a different way and at a different pace, but none of that matters to them. They just want to learn!

My students are my inspiration, my reason for coming back to the classroom.

Their passion for learning something new, their kindness, their desire to help others often before helping themselves makes me even more determined to give them every opportunity possible.

My Project

Atom Snackers Cafe came into being because we were looking for ways to prepare our Adaptive Curriculum students for the work world, while also giving them the opportunity to interact with the students and adults on campus. Atom Snackers Cafe gives our students the opportunity to learn and practice real life skills that are relevant to where the students are now and where they want to be in the near future...ready to be productive citizens!

Real Life, Relevant, Ready!

Atom Snackers Cafe provides students, faculty and staff with a different option for a quality lunch or snack every Wednesday. The food options offered are handmade by the students with adult assistance. Atom Snackers student workers assist with ordering supplies, customer service, food planning, food preparation, food safety, teamwork, and accounting.

Atom Snackers is a hands-on learning tool for our students. Our cafe is tied to our CBVI curriculum and allows our students to learn about cost and profit, customer service skills, how to count money and make change, how to maintain stock, accounting skills, and food safety and proper food preparation.

Our classroom consists of a small kitchen with very little counter space. Currently, we are doing all food preparation on the various desks and tables we use for classwork. Those same tables and desks must quickly be converted to serving tables once all of the prepping and cooking is done. Three steel food prep tables will allow our students to have adequate space for sweets prep, nachos/pretzels prep and chicken wing prep. We would no longer have to worry about cross contamination or destroying our classroom furniture with hot foods.
