My Students

My students are very bright young adults in a high school special education classroom. All of my students have autism spectrum disorder and face various emotional and intellectual challenges. They go to school in a Harvey-hit area of Houston in a Title I school.

My students also require additional practice to help them with their transition skills.

My students have increased chances of job success in the future when they are provided opportunities to practice vocational skills in school.

My students work on academic skills as well as vocational and interpersonal/social skills throughout their school day. They are hardworking and a delight to teach. They enjoy learning new things and are especially interested in learning how to work this year! All of the materials will help increase the structure of the classroom and their independence within the classroom and the community and help them achieve job opportunities!

My Project

Our students have begun training for an on-campus coffee cart business. The cart is run entirely by special education students, giving them the job skills they need to be successful after graduation.

We will use things like the beverage cart, the coffee maker, the sign and the syrups to make their business more successful by enticing teachers and staff to purchase from our bright students with Autism!

Help us brew independence one cup at a time!

Coffee carts are shown to be successful in other public schools, giving special ed students a chance to learn how to count money and make change, how to take and fulfill an order and practice the basics of customer service.
