Two Garden City teachers standing with a student in front of a coffee cart.Each day, Garden City Elementary is transformed into a mini coffee shop.  It is all part of the Gator Coffee Cart Program.

Students in the Regional Autism Program brew and deliver coffee to teachers and staff througout the building.  It is a great way for students to work on their math, reading, and social skills.  Teacher Sierra Price started the program two years ago.  She believes the daily deliveries have created better understanding of one another thoughout the building.

The program has become so popular, students now make three deliveries a day.  They've also expanded their options to include hot chocolate and other great flavors.

The Gator Coffee Cart was featured on WSLS-TV.  Click here to watch the story
