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 DonorsChoose.org helps us to meet our students' needs.

My Project

I need books like: Sparkle Boy, Mixed, Who Are you?, Annie's Plaid Shirt, and books on perfectionism to help teach my students that everyone is different and we need to accept others and ourselves.

Students sometimes experience anxiety when they are questioning who they are.

When my students relate to characters in the book or are able to hear the subtle message/lesson they begin to open their hearts to themselves and others.

The books on perseverance like: More Than Mud and Ricky, the Rock that Couldn't Roll will help teach my students GRIT and show them there will be times they will need to dig deep to stick to it!
