My Students

I have the unique opportunity to be a school counselor of some really fabulous students. It is the best job I have ever had. It provides social-emotional learning to students that really need it.

My students are very energetic, which means I have to always be ready with engaging guidance lessons to keep them attentive.

We meet once a week to discuss, play games, role play, and watch videos related to the topics such as anti-bullying, conflict-resolution, friendship, etc.

Our school is an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) school and we are working on becoming college and career ready. We are also a STEAM school in which we want to enhance our students skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.

My Project

I am a counselor in a school of over 700 students and although my students want to do their best it's hard to focus on learning when their are so many barriers. When a student comes to school uncomfortable because they haven't taken a bath and are wearing the same clothes they wore the day before, it's quite hard to focus on learning.

Bullying is a big problem that can impact a child's ability to focus on learning.

At my school, I never want a child to be made fun of because they are not clean or their clothes are dirty. That's why I am collecting the items I am requesting for this project.

Through this project my goal is to boost a child's self esteem by having these items available if needed. It will help students feel better, make many friends, achieve and be anything they want to be.
