My Students

My students are curious, persistent learners eager to be the best that they can be. Currently we are a kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade Elementary, and 6th and 7th grade middle public school filled with amazing students and families with whom I feel privileged to work. Majority of our students are eligible for free/reduced lunch despite having two working parents in the home.

As the school social worker I am lucky enough to work with all grade levels to run a counseling program to support students social and emotional needs!

I am able to support students through stressful times and help them build coping skills to be more successful at school and in life.

Our school is dedicated to being a joyful place where students feel cared for and nurtured. We are a diverse, goal oriented group dedicated to our students making it to and through college.

My Project

At my school about 80% of students live in food insecure households. Cutting edge brain research tells us what most moms already know, hungry kids cannot regulate their mood or learn as well as students that have proper nutrition. By students having access to healthy snacks and sensory toys during the school day they are able to build their emotional regulation skills and learn better in the classroom. Last year I was able to fund a similar project and I was able to give out over 300 snacks during the Spring semester.

Our school saw not only academic improvement, but behavioral improvment as well.

Students that used to run out of class or become angry very easily were now learning to say, "I am hungry, may I please have a snack and a break." This led to hours of more productive work in the classroom- from just a 10 minute snack break and re-set.

Our students are kind and generous and just so eager and happy to learn. I want to make this the best school year ever for them!
