My Students

I work with amazing 5th and 6th grade students as a school counselor at an intermediate school. I interact with an entire grade level through classroom lessons and offer small groups as well as individual sessions to students. Because we "loop" with students I get to work as their school counselor with them both years they are at our school.

I feel truly honored to support the social emotional growth and academic success of my students.

During 5th and 6th grade students discover so much about themselves and I love being a part of that process. I especially enjoy running small groups that focus on mindfulness, stress and anxiety, and girl's empowerment.

My Project

My school counseling office is often a safe place for students experiencing difficult life events and strong emotions. I would like to create a relaxed setting where students can feel at home and comforted. These Big Joe chairs will help me establish this environment, as well as accommodate my students with sensory differences.

I find that so many of my 6th graders need a safe place to land during their school day.

I endeavor to create that space in my office, supporting students social emotional needs so they can return to class more ready to learn. Thank you deeply for your consideration and support.
