I am a guidance counselor at an elementary school where many children have relocated due to Katrina. Even though the storm was months ago, many issues such as low self-esteem, are just now surfacing. The reality that lives are forever changed is very hard for children to understand. Many believe that they are to blame for all of the problems their families are experiencing. I go to every classroom (K-6) several times a month, as well as counsel these children individually, so all of our 475 students will benefit from the materials that I am requesting. I am requesting a variety of books, videos, and games to help children develop self esteem, experience diversity, and learn about compassion. Please help our children and our school. Thanks so much for considering my request. .
