My students represent a unique population: students that were referred to our school from various schools throughout the city for behavior and/or academic concerns. My school provides a unique, non-traditional environment that offers classroom guidance and character group sessions weekly. We also provide smaller classroom settings to better cater to our students' individual needs. Our students also have the opportunity to participate in service learning trips twice a month to recognize the importance of serving the community. As a counselor in this unique environment, I have the grand opportunity to know my students and their needs in depth. As a result, I have searched for the donations and services of agencies, such as dental cleanings, counseling, and other agencies when needed. I use creativity with them through music, role play, art, and other hands-on materials to address topics such as self-esteem, and self-control.
