Caffeinate with Color

My students need a colored printer, ink, and supplies to set up a coffee house so that they can feel more like their peers at school.

My Students

As a Special Education and AVID teacher I teach a group of students with diverse needs. Typically my students are first generation college hopefuls from low-income families. They often come to school with so much baggage (poverty, drug addicted parents, abuse, homelessness, etc) it's a wonder they're still standing.

But stand they do!

They work hard every day because they know that education is the key to a better life. They are incredibly resilient young men and women and I find my self inspired by them daily.

My Project

Today's classrooms are becoming more and more project based and many teachers assume that students have colored printers at home. My students need this colored printer and ink so that they can create high quality projects that are competitive to their peers who have these resources at home.

I want to create a coffee house atmosphere in my Special Education/AVID classes because I believe this will reduces the stigma for many of the students coming into my room.

My students live in a world where they often have less than their peers. High school students live in coffee houses, they get coffee before school and they study at Starbucks after school. My students are often not able to afford these luxuries and I'd like to create an environment that allows them to feel more like their peers.
