My Students

As a Social-Emotional Counselor for the entire school, I am privileged to work with all students within the K-12 charter school.

Each student brings a different background, home environment, personal history, goals and personality, but all are equally as important to reach out to and feel heard.

My students include Kindergarteners learning social skills, making friends and understanding personal space. Students who exhibit difficulty following directions practice activities which require active listening. A number of students experience difficulty with impulse control and distractibility, so we use activities which require concentration to strengthen those skills. Many students benefit from improving their emotional intelligence, particularly because bullying is such an important topic to cover, so teaching about emotions and empathy are crucial components of education for everyone. Some students exhibit low motivation, so discussing self-esteem, self-confidence and courage to develop personal goals is important to help develop a sense of accomplishment. I provide students who feel angry, upset or stressed with a safe place to regulate their emotions. Still more students experience mental health issues which require additional support and understanding. It is extremely important to provide every student with tools necessary to be compassionate, forgiving, courageous and grateful for life.

My Project

As the Social-Emotional Counselor of a K-12 Charter School, I am provided the privilege of serving all the students of the school. My goal is not just to reach the defiant students who act out for attention, but also to address the quiet students are not able to work, the anxious students who do not know how to ask for help, the ones who cannot concentrate because of difficulties outside of school, and all others in between.

By using therapeutic games, like Stop, Relax & Think or the Talking, Feeling, Doing Game, Totika Self-Esteem game, TableTopics, Anger Defuser, and CBT 123 students are better able to have their specific social-emotional needs met.

It is important to engage the students, to build rapport and develop safe and healthy relationships so that they can develop strong social-emotional intelligence, confidence, courage and compassion.
