My Students

Our students come from diverse backgrounds. In addition to neighborhood students, we have a large population of students who choose to transfer to our school.

They come to school excited to be here and expect the best!

I want to be able to provide my students with engaging lessons and activities to help them grow. We are the only elementary school in our district that does not receive Title 1 funding. With support from the PTO, we are given a small budget that helps to supply some office supplies and classroom needs.

My Project

I am hoping to build a resource center to enhance student learning. Books have been chosen on different subjects that are commonly addressed in school counseling. The CBT Toolbox will be used in all aspects of the counseling program: classroom guidance, group activities, and individual session. The games will be used in group settings to encourage working with others. Some of the individual toys such as the fidgets and the find it toy will enhance personal times between the student and the counselor. All of these resources will help create a solid foundation for my school counseling program.

I want to help my students as they grow to understand who they are!
