My Students

The students that I have the blessing to work with daily are extensions of their community. They are predominately students of color who come from environments farrowed with barriers to their development. These barriers are included but are not limited to mental health needs such as stress, trauma, anxiety, and social-emotional deficits. 85% of my student population receive free and reduced lunch and more than half are below grade level with regards to academic proficiency. They need support to improve their overall outcomes. Resources however can be difficult to come by and funding even more so. My students require a unique approach and delivery when providing them the support that nurtures their ability for healthy self-expression.

My Project

As a school counselor we often must make due with what we have available. This year my office has been moved to what used to be our PBIS closet. While I am just grateful to have my own space, it has been a bit tricky to make it work. One of my big needs right now are electric outlets - however due to the space I am in, my options are limited. To ensure I do not have fire hazards by way of extension cords plugged into surge protectors and vice versa - I need support getting this resources. Having these surge protectors, extension cords with extended length and USB chargers will allow me to run my electronics in my office such as my laptop, printers, additional monitor. I can use these devices when I am meeting with students and reviewing their grades during my At Risk Conferences. They will also help me plug up my salt rock lamp, fountain and decor lights that helps provide a relaxing environment for students when they take mindful breaks in my office.
