Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Project

We're a Title I school, where most students come from low-income families, and our student body is predominantly minority, with only 2% being white. Our school prides itself on being a safe, supportive, and innovative learning environment where every student is inspired and valued.

As a Psychiatric Social Worker, I offer a safe haven for students facing stress or social, emotional, and mental struggles.

This upcoming school year, I'm fortunate to have a dedicated classroom for this purpose, and I'm eager to transform it into a cozy and inviting student lounge. I'm envisioning comfortable seating, fidget toys, therapy games, couches, and more to create a welcoming and calming atmosphere.

With your support, we can design a space where students feel at ease, allowing them to open up about their feelings and better prepare themselves to tackle both academic and social challenges.

Thank you for joining me in crafting a nurturing environment that equips students with coping skills, enabling them to focus and thrive in the classroom!

We're thrilled to announce that we've partnered with Season of Sunday, a mental health advocacy brand. With their invaluable support, we're enhancing our efforts to create a nurturing environment for our students. Together, we'll be placing informative signage around the school, organizing fundraising initiatives like this, and accessing additional resources for our students.

With this collaboration, we're on track to establish the most incredible mental health room for our kids. Thank you for being part of this journey as we prioritize the well-being of our students and empower them with the tools they need to thrive.
