My Students

Hello, I am a Guidance Counselor at a Title I school. I love helping my students learn important social emotional skills to help build solid and strong friendships and behaviors that will help them thrive throughout their lives. My students are very talented, expressive, communicative and active students. They are eager to learn, to create and to express themselves in a positive and mature manner. They just need guidance to help learn to do that. My students come from a diverse background that makes them very special individuals to their school and community.

My Project

The materials and supplies such as soil and plant bed is a start that will help beautify the schools outdoor green space by giving the students and community a place that is appealing and charming. Plus green spaces have many positive health behaviors that have been known to improve the mental health of adults and children with their cognitive skills such as memory and attention as well as improve air pollution.

The green space will have a continued effect that the students will utilize for relaxation, nature and environmental study through bird watching of local or migrant wildlife.

In addition, the natural environment of the green space will improve social interactions, discovery, mastery and a lot more beneficial therapeutic measures.
