My Students

The students at my school are bright, energetic, and curious. The school is diverse in culture, language, and student needs. My students love to read, learn, use technology, and socialize.

Our student population is becoming more diverse and some students require additional supports in and out of the classroom.

Some students benefit from small group counseling in the areas of social skills, making and keeping friends and regulating their emotions.

While school budgets are tight, student needs are on the rise. Creating projects on helps us to meet our students' needs.

My Project

As we learn more about trauma and being a trauma sensitive school it is important to have resources like: The Trauma-Sensitive Classroom: Building Resilience with Compassionate Teaching, Fostering Resilient Learners: Strategies for Creating a Trauma-Sensitive Classroom, Find Your Happy!: A Kid's Self Love and My Strong Mind: A Story About Developing Mental Strength to help staff learn about trauma and resiliency.

With more and more students being diagnosed with ADHD and ASD it is equally important to have resources that can teach flexible thinking.

As the full-time school counselor it is very important for me to have resources to pull from when I am asked about a particular topic. These books will help to fill a void on my shelves.

Thank you in advance for looking at my project. These books will be used with love in my school.
