My Students

My students are doing their best to succeed in a world in which the cards are stacked against them. We are a Title I school in which over 90% of our students live in poverty. One in five kids do not have enough to eat and 10% of children in the district are homeless. Statistically, our school demographics are 43% African American, 42% Hispanic, 3% Native American, 3% multi-racial and 7% Caucasian.

Over 40% of students within our school district have a diagnosable mental illness.

And the worst part is, most never receive treatment. Many of my students have experienced tremendous trauma, from the loss of a parent to experiencing abuse or neglect, or the incarceration of a parent.

As a School Counselor, I want to ensure my students receive the help they need. They deserve a fighting chance to succeed, but it truly takes a village to raise a child.

My Project

As the school counselor, I see kids in crisis every day.

One simple, but all-too-common reason for a meltdown, is that they are hungry.

Maybe they didn't arrive in time for breakfast or they didn't get through the cafeteria line in fast enough to eat an adequate meal. Maybe they didn't have dinner the night before. Whatever the reason, I have found that offering a student a healthy snack helps them calm down when they are in crisis and open up to me so that we can talk about whats going on in their life.

And, after a few minutes, they are better equipped to concentrate, work on coping skills and return to class.
