My Students

Our school is a therapeutic K-8 school for students with severe emotional disorders. All of our students have been through or faced some type of traumatic event during their young life.

Even through the challenges my students have faced or are facing they come in every day smiling and ready to learn.

Our school is a positive, warm, safe, and inviting environment for our students. As a staff, we have been trained to be a therapeutic setting in which we strive to meet each of our students individualized needs. We celebrate each and every success no matter how big or small.

My Project

I chose this project because my students struggle with social skills on a daily basis. Due to my students' struggles we have social skill lessons several times a week in which we help them learn how to understand their emotions, understand each other, appreciate each other, and work together.

With these books and games my students will learn new social skills which will help improve their Social-emotional skills, Academic Achievement, Social interactions, Attitudes about self and others, and their Conduct in school, at home, and in the community.

Once we read the book "Baditude! What to Do When Life Stinks! (Responsible Me!)" we will discuss the book and then play the game Don't Go Bananas which will help my students learn to work on strong emotions.

These activities will also help prepare my students for success in our school and the community.
