My Students

My students come from a variety of cultures, with over half of our school population consisting of non-native English speakers. Much of our population consists of students of deployed, reintegrated, or retired military personnel. This can sometimes create barriers to traditional and conventional teaching. Despite the challenges they face, they are still energetic, fun-loving, and eager to learn.

The students we serve are eager to learn and trust in knowing we will provide them with as much love as possible.

My kids are awesome, funny, and happy students who work together to build a great community. I am the ambassador of their education and want to make sure they have lasting memories of their academic years.

My Project

We live in a fast paced society. Here our children are often dealing with high emotions but have no way of properly expressing them. As a school counselor, I often see students who are angry, sad, frustrated and anxious. They have not learned the skills necessary to handle these types of emotions.

Our world has changed so much in the past few months and these games are a great way to connect and help our students "play out" their emotions.

Using these games improve social skills, emotional regulation, self-control and self-resilience in children and adolescents.

These games are designed for use in individual therapy and group sessions by therapists and counselors. It enables a fun and safe means of exposure to emotions and related cognitive issues.
