My Students

I have a wonderful, eager, and persistent group of students. They come from diverse backgrounds and life stories. Our school is a Title I school, and many of the students receive free and reduced lunch. These students have needs, and I want to help meet those needs.

What I find particularly amazing about my students is they support each other.

If one student is struggling, then another student is helping them. They care about learning, but most importantly they care about each other. Students who feel cared for at school will want to continue to be at school. That's why it's so important that I meet as many of their needs, both socially and academically.

My Project

My class has been working on mindful practices all year long. During this time, I've noticed that what my students have needed most isn't academic support, it's emotional support. Some of my students are in very uncertain times and I want to provide a way for them to continue to practice their mindfulness in a way that is special to them and doesn't feel like another homework assignment. I'm asking for help in giving my students mindful activities that they can practice and then a place where they can journal their emotional well being. These skills are the same kinds of skills that healthy adults practice and I want to help my students learn them now so that they are better equipped to deal with the uncertainties and stressful times of life.
