Teacher Crawford from Groveland FL is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Nesting Place

My students need supplies to get their coffee business up and running so they can raise money for the classroom.

  • $492 goal

This project expired on September 15, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My class is composed of approximately 13, very unique students with learning and emotional disabilities. Although they range in ability, my students are a great example of hard work and perseverance. They have a great attitude and very kind hearts.

My department has a small budget for our ESE students.

There are not enough resources to provide them the tools they need for success. We are expected to provide many of our own resources, in addition to teaching all subjects.

I am a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school district where my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Many of them are being raised in single parent households, by grandparents or foster parents. All qualify to receive free lunch and are not able to do any activities outside of school due to their social economic status. The opportunities given to them in my classroom are all that some ever get.

My goal is to teach them to become independent adults and give them hope and the opportunity of a positive future.

My Project

The materials we are requesting will help my students get their coffee business up and running. The students will be fully responsible for collecting and fulfilling orders, as well as managing the money.

Through this experience, students will learn not only how to make change, they will also gain understanding of profits, budgets, expenses, and other financial terms that will be important to their success as adults.

They will also learn what great customer service looks like as well as the appropriate social skills in a work-like environment.

These skills are vital to the success and well-being of our students beyond the classroom, and our goal is to make sure that we have equipped them with the knowledge they need to be independent adjusted adults.
