My Students

The elementary school I am a part of is home to just under 700 students. Our multi-cultural population is comprised of some families born and raised in Maine, some first generations as well as many immigrants and refugees. The vast differences among these individuals allows for fruitful learning experiences.

Each student arrives at school with their own story, as their school counselor, part of my job is to ensure their story is heard and understood.

I love being able to see each student learn and grow in their own way. It is important to me that students are given the opportunity to express their emotions through a variety of tools. Engaging conversations and activities work towards helping their struggles and building on their strengths.

My Project

As a school counselor there are multiple ways I am engaging with students on a daily basis. I meet with whole classrooms to provide social/emotional, academic, and career lessons. I have small groups of 4-8 students that I work with on specific skills, strengths or challenges. I also meet with students individually, addressing their own needs in a 1:1 setting.

Students' social and emotional needs come first within my role; utilizing effective literature and games is imperative in developing or building on those needs.

It is through books, sand play, games, and various stress relieving toys, students are able to explore their emotions and reflect on their choices.
