My Students

I am a School Counselor to over 460 students in a K-5 school. The students in my school are from diverse backgrounds with many different interests. My students are caring, friendly, thoughtful, and empathetic. Much of my time is spent in the classrooms or in my office helping students with their character, learning skills, emotions, and problem solving. These skills are all important for their time in school as well as for outside of school.

I believe that students with these skills are able to maintain positive relationships and will meet with higher levels of success both in and out of the classroom.

In order to prepare my students for the social and academic interactions they will face, I am always looking to current literature to help deliver my lessons to individuals, small groups, and whole classes.

My Project

After 20 years of teaching, I can truly say I would have never predicted a year starting like this one. All educators are looking for ways to connect with their students online in a more productive way. I want to be able to provide weekly stories to my students that will not only serve as a way for me to connect with them online, but will give them an opportunity to learn skills that can help them cope with their own emotions.

We are looking at a very different type of classroom than we were just one year ago.

I want to be able to continue to provide my students with all of the support and care that I can. The books and activities on my list will help me connect with them through literature. Each book has a wonderful message and skills that we can work on together as a group.
