Ms. Kreider from Centreville VA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

A Positive Relationship- Building Library

Help me give my students a library that encourages positive behavior. I believe that in order for students to be successful in school, we need to look at the whole child which includes the social and emotional aspect!

My Students

Students at my school are taught and encouraged to be creative, risk takers, and goal setters. They know and believe, along with the staff that the only way to grow is to work together as a community. Building relationships is the cornerstone of lifelong happiness and we foster that by empowering our students to see that people matter.

Students in this time go through so much in their lives.

They are bombarded with social media and pressures from families, peers, and schools to achieve in every area. Some of the struggles that my students go through are peer pressures, relationships with peers, and self-regulation. I want to make sure that no child gets left behind or falls through the cracks!

My Project

We are in a trauma crisis society. Students need to have healthy relationships with adults in school. I make sure that no child is overlooked by making sure to see them, meet with them, and know them- letting them know that everyday is a chance to be better and that children are brave, strong and loved!

I will use these books to help students struggling in all areas in school whether it's socially, emotionally, or academically.

By giving guidance lessons in classrooms, I'm hopeful that every child will be reached. For those who need extra help and care, I will pull small groups and uses these books to emphasize specific skills that need more building up. Please help me build my library to help students succeed in school!
