Statistics show that children living in low-income high poverty areas are more likely to experience high trauma situations. This is the case for many of my students, resulting in impulsive, aggressive, and other negative types of behavior. My students have difficulty coping, managing their emotions, and problem solving when put in situations that cause them stress, frustration, or anxiety. Unfortunately, many schools, including mine, aren't well equipped with mental health programs that address these issues. But here at my school, we are trying to change this so that every student has the skills they need to become more successful now and for their futures. The yoga mats, metronome, and other supplies will support the program being implemented into the school day that is based around mindfulness. These materials will help build a more relaxing space where students can "reset" their minds, learning how to focus on breathing, how to make peace with their thoughts, how to be more aware, and more. With these materials, the program will help reduce the amount of negative behaviors and distractions from learning so that my students can better focus on their education to become the strongest champions I know they are.
