Coffee Shop Jr.

Thanks, as always, to my favorite librarian for sharing some interesting news about coffee. In this case, it is a coffee shop organized by a creative middle-school teacher in Edison, New Jersey. Thomas Macchiaverna started the weekly cafe as a way of helping students with autism and learning disabilities to learn a variety of life skills, from social interaction to math. It has been popular with students and teachers alike, and has allowed the students to fund some valuable activities that had fallen victim to cost cutting.
