My Students

I work with at risk freshmen students as a 9th grade transition counselor. My students have been identified at the 8th grade level as being at risk for behavioral, attendance and academic challenges. This group of students benefits greatly from individualized support and respond well to positive reinforcement.

My students come from diverse backgrounds and face many different challenges.

Many of my students come from low income homes and do not have all the resources they need. Individualized supports are necessary to assure that this group of students have the same opportunities for success as others.

My Project

Many of the 9th graders who I work with struggle in school. They need support and encouragement in order to reach their academic potential. One of the goals they have set for themselves is to maintain a B average during their freshman year. At the end of the first semester 49% of students had achieved this goal. Through support and positive reinforcement my students are seeing success. I want to celebrate their achievement and let them know that their efforts are being noticed. A field trip to Sky Zone will reinforce their achievement and allow my students to know that their school is proud of them.
