My Students

36% of my students identify as English Language learners or bilingual and 11% are identified as Special Education. Our school is a Title I school which means students 40% of families come from low-income families.

My students need to use creative expression as a coping technique to manage their moods, hold a sacred space whilst in school, promote a positive healing school culture, and celebrate our school's diverse ethnic and cultural experiences.

My students have trauma histories and/or other mental health challenges that I hope are empowered by experiences and opportunities to jump into self-expression.

My Project

These materials will create a rich experience to process the loss of someone special. Students also lived during a pandemic that made drastic changes to their lives. All of our students who enter the mental health wing state that they are having difficulty processing the worldwide change. The most expensive item on this list is the acrylic paint, this paint will be used to decorate their memory boxes. All items will be used for different activities that are used to process their loss. These groups are bilingual to target our diverse cultures.
