Throughout the 2019-2020 school year, a coffee cart has been visiting classrooms during mentor. Our classmates from Mrs. Enderson’s mentor have been running the coffee cart. Mrs. Enderson uses it to help her special education students to develop good working skills in a safe learning environment. She also says that each student also learns from a job coach in the Bellbrook community to develop the skills they need to be successful in life.
In the beginning, the coffee cart sales were excellent, but now they’ve slowed down. Despite decreased sales, Mrs. Enderson says that she and the students are still enjoying it. The major sale challenge is when other students are selling things during mentor.
When asked how everything went when she started up the coffee cart, Mrs. Enderson said, “Everything went as expected and the student interaction is the best part!” She wants people to come out and talk to our esteemed coffee vendors even if they aren’t purchasing tea, coffee or hot chocolate since communication is a major part of their work training. So next time they poke their head into your mentor, strike up a conversation and learn more than just the price of a small coffee.
