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.

With many of my students living outside of the traditional family they often come from traumatic situations. Dealing with trauma and developing from trauama is a daily struggle and students need proper tools and strategies to work through past experiences.

My Project

These items will help me create a safe and relaxting space for my students to use. The weighted blanket will help students with severe anxiety. The magnetic sand tray helps ease minds, and distract from chaos.

Trauma can effect daily routines and sometimes my students become so overwhelmed by past or current events that make it hard for them to focus in the classroom.

Using my office as a safe space to regain control of their emotions is my goal.

I want to help my students struggling with trauma, and give them tools to work through their constant fluctuating emotional state.
