My Students

Our students are diverse, energetic and passionate. We are a suburb of NYC and over the past few years, we have grown to reflect an evolving community full of pride for their school and the opportunities it grants them. We have longtime, multi-generational families right along new entrants from not only the US but countries around the world. Our students love a challenge and want to be pushed to be greater tomorrow than they were yesterday. We have amazing athletes, entrepreneurs, musicians, artists, and empirical thinkers among our roles and could not be prouder of who they are or where they are headed.

My Project

School Counselors connect with all different students for all different reasons but one common threat pervails; trust and respect are huge components of open conversation. Our offices are off a long hallway and it is easy to hear what is going on in each office when walking by. Noise machines in between offices will muffle conversation and emotions being shared behind closed doors from faculty, students and staff walking by. Even stories that are not emotionally charged deserve privacy and students need the confort on knowing they can speak freely about whatever situation we're discussing. Fidget toys, jolly ranches and motivational stickers all facilitate and reinforce the conversations we're having and help students connect with their counselors.
