My Students

My students are wonderful! The majority come from a low socioeconomic area and many have experienced trauma. They are living in a time and area where drug abuse seems to be the new normal.

A large percentage of my students are living with family members other than biological Mom and Dad due to parent incarceration or intervention from child protective services.

I have many grandparents raising their grandchildren, and some are even living in foster care.

I work with a lot of students that have experienced trauma as children and are learning how to cope with their ever changing home environment. Coping with stress, anxiety, an array of emotions, has become part of their daily norms.

My Project

My office is in need of more coping tools and strategies to help my students control their emotional stress. I have requested things like 'stress relieving coloring' to help students refocus and relax as well as stress balls when they become anxious and overwhelmed. Many of them are living in constant chaos, with an ever changing 'home' environment.

Many of my students lack appropriate coping skills, my goal is to give them alternate outlets and tools to cope with anxiety, stress, grief, and the multitude of emotions they experience as middle school students.

The items I have requested will help students relax and refocus, while working through different emotions.
