My Students

My students are wonderful! I have a caseload averaging about 425 students. With graduation requirements now requiring three years of science (Bio, Chem, Physics), a CTE course, Art, increased math, etc. I often hear about their academic stress and pressure.

Mental health concerns among high school youth are higher than ever, particularly anxiety and depression.

With the added STEAM requirements on their course loads, I want my students to have access to stress-relieving tools.

My Project

Many students are looking to attend various different pathways after high school but regardless of their post-secondary pathway, all of our students must complete rigorous STEAM coursework to meet graduation requirements.

The items in this project will give students access to healthy stress-relieving coping mechanisms!

I would like to provide all my students with a care package to take home and enjoy when they need a light-hearted pick me up and physical items proved to relieve stress and anxiety. Covid-19 has directly impacted all our students, academically and mentally, we cannot physically to support my students but these items will hopefully provide a little relief in times of need! Let's blow off some STEAM!
