Hello, I am a Licensed Social Worker at New Orleans West College Prep. I work at a Kindergarten-5th grade school that opened up in Houston for students who evacuated from New Orleans due to Hurricane Katrina. As you can imagine, I have a very busy job counseling these students on various issues. Many children here lost their family members, homes, and had to start a new life in Houston. Their emotions can range from angry, sad, worried, fearful, etc., and I am here to help them through this process. I am writing to Donors Choose because there are some counseling materials I know the students would enjoy using and could benefit from. At Boulden Publishing, they have a discounted activity packs that I would like to use at my school. Two of the "counselor packs" are CD-Roms to use on the computer. The kids here love working on the computer. They deal with subjects such as character education, conflict resolution, feelings, anger management, bullying, divorce, listening, learning from mistakes, teasing, grief and loss, peer pressure, self respect, and violence. The other item I would like to get for the children here is a set of videos that deal with fears and anxieties. The videos help kids learn how to overcome fears. If my proposal is granted, I will use these materials with any of the students here that come to talk with me, and that ranges from students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. I truly feel they can benefit from these counseling materials. Thank you so much.
