My Students

I am an Elementary School Counselor to over 300 students in a K-5 Title I school in San Antonio, Texas. The students come from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and socioeconomic statuses. They all have different interests and academic abilities.

Our students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom.

Much of my time is spent providing guidance lessons, helping students with their character, learning skills, emotions, and problem-solving. These skills are all important to help them generalize into their everyday life.

My Project

This project is to get various sensory items, like sound tubes and lap pads, for the counseling room. I have several students who come into my room to deal with their emotional issues. Therefore I am aiming at having sensory area for them in the counseling room to teach them how to deal with anxiety.

So this project is gear towards weight stuff animal, sound tubes, a tent and a small area rainbow rug.

These items will help the student calm down high stress moments. These products will help students to feel grounded when they need to be, or help them focus when they are having trouble.
