My Students

I am a school counselor at a school with a diverse community. We serve students that are wealthy, and also students who come from impoverished backgrounds.

My students are the type that find something good about every situation, and they always want to do for others.

My students are funny, smart, empathetic, innovative, and caring little people who will do anything to always help their friends at any given time. They have big hearts for such little bodies.

My Project

Mental health has always been important, but more now than ever before! My students have faced a lot of challenges over the last year and a half. I am trying to provide them with a safe and calm place in my office to take a minute and just breathe. The environment in a school counselors office means everything. Calm lighting, a rug to sit on, and a chair to relax in. Feels less like a classroom or school, and more like you're at a friends house. They will leave my office refreshed and ready to continue the day.
