I am a counselor at an elementary school and counsel Kindergarten through Sixth graders. I teach character education, social skills, and others skills necessary to ensure that all students have a chance to achieve success. We have many Katrina evacuees who have experienced trauma and loss. My job has become an essential part of learning for these children, because without a sense of security, these children can't learn. I teach ways to cope with life's challenges. I am requesting many books that will help these students. These books include topics, such as: prejudice, feelings, family relationships, conflict resolution, character development, and several of Coretta Scott King Author Award books. Thank you for considering my proposal. You will be helping all 550 children in my school for many years to come.
