My Students

Our school is a low-income school in a borough neighborhood in New York. The majority of my students are academically and emotionally challenged and suffer from trauma and poverty. As a result, they exhibit depression, anxiety, and exhibit aggressive behaviors on a daily basis. Their parents and caregivers are also struggling and aren't always able to provide their children with the tools they need to even have a chance of success. A large number of our students are living in temporary housing and are traveling over an hour each way just to get to school.

I would love to be able to provide them a cool and inviting office space for them to relax and cool down both physically and emotionally.

As a school counselor, students come to my room when they are upset, and feeling guarded and ashamed.

My Project

My room is located on the 4th floor of an elementary school in the belmont section of the Bronx. Our building is over 100 years old. Paint is chipping and the school is dark.

I would love to provide more supplies, posters, etc to brighten up the counseling space so that when the students return in September, they have a bright and happy counseling space.

This past year has been particularly hard on our school, as we lost a 5th grader to suicide. Counseling services are an integral part of the school experience and having a colorful space with motivating posters would be wonderful. thank you so much for reading!!!
