My Students

I am the school counselor at a Pre-k -8th grade Charter School in Wilmington, Delaware. We service over 400 students in a Title I, urban education setting.

The students are curious, energetic and creative.

However, sometimes their daily struggles or lack of resources outside of school interfere with their learning. They spend time in my office calming down and working through their difficulties.

Because I service such a high number of students I would like to create an environment in which students can be technologically independent. I believe incorporating technology in my office will give my students access to a more effective counseling experience.

My Project

The Chromebooks I am requesting for the counseling office have many important uses for my students. Bringing technology to the office will help students in a variety of grade levels. With the use of Chromebooks, I will be able to serve multiple students at a time.

The use of technology in the counseling office will help with academic and social emotional learning, career exploration, high school planning and music therapy.

This will help students that lack technological resources at home research high school and career options. Additionally, students will have access to programs that will teach them de-escalation skills that they can apply to their daily routine.
