I Want to Be an Entrepreneur

My students need a Keurig Brewing system, k-cups, and three Ninja Bullets to start their cafe to sell to teachers to practice entrepreneurship.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/ poverty school district, my students are bombarded with challenges that interfere with some progress in the classroom. However, my students, regardless of what life throws at them, come ready to learn.

My students are talented, fun, and very creative with their hands.

I am greeted with a hug which, in turn, validates the reason why I accepted this position. I recognize their good works and acknowledge their presence from the moment they enter the room. If I could express more about my students, I would say that I am privileged and honored to teach each one of them.

The students actually inspired me to complete this project. The reason for the project was to make a change that would impact instruction for my students.

My Project

My students need opportunities to experience positive interactions and practice with money in the school. In addition, students need to understand the importance of saving and investing their money. The students wanted to help their fellow classmates and teachers in the building raise funds for family fun days. The choice was to sell coffee and make smoothies during holidays, parent teacher conferences, and literacy days.

My students are an awesome group of students who want to make a change for the better in their school.

We need a Keurig Brewing system, k-cups, and three Ninja Bullets.

I believe that this project will enable my students to learn the value of money and why it is important to think about the future. I like the fact that my students want to know how to spend and save their money for the future. Not only that, my students are always thinking of ways to raise money for great causes for the school. I am very proud of my little entrepreneurs.
