Mrs. Landeros from Sacramento CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Guidance Curriculum

My students need a variety of books/bibliotherapy options in which they can relate to. This can help build up the students' self-esteem and help validate their inner feelings.

My Students

As a new school counselor that will begin my teaching career in a K-8 this upcoming year. Because it is my first year I have no books and truly believe in the power and validation bibliotherapy can provide for students. I have spent this summer creating a variety of different guidance class lessons.

I will be working with all students K-8 from individual sessions, group counseling, and I plan on going into classrooms and implementing guidance lessons.

This is a dual immersion school. It is a title I school with half of the population on free or reduced lunch. This school is a career focused school that is attempting to shift its purpose and attempting to implement prevention interventions, which is where I come in.

My Project

I will begin my career at this school with no resources and over 600 students on my caseload. These resources could help me reach, connect and build rapport with my students. I would like them to feel like they could come into my office and talk to me when needed. If a student is having a bad day or may be needing a self-esteem booster for example, we could read a story, discuss it and hopefully give the student students tools that could help he/she restart there day.

Bibliotherapy is something that any child can understand when personal, social, and/or emotional issues may arise.

It is helpful for students to see characters (from books) going through similar situations and can help them relate to what they are going through.
