My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds and living situations. I work with students who are struggling with adjusting to changing families, social, and emotional pressures and might need a little extra attention individually, in small groups, as well as in classroom guidance lessons. Students have to learn how to navigate social media, family home life, friendship changes, physical changes, among other things all at once. Despite the challenges they face, they are still energetic, fun-loving, and eager to learn and I am honored to serve the emotional, social and academic needs of my students.

My students are bright and creative and will benefit from having a School Counseling Program that will help them thrive emotionally in order to attain academic success.

As a school counselor, I strive to create a positive and welcoming environment where every student can obtain the right tools to succeed.

My Project

All of these materials will be essential in helping me expand my counseling program and support children's' social-emotional learning.

I would like to engage my kids through the use of social-emotional learning books, games, and play therapy.

Children express themselves in a variety of ways. The play therapy will offer them different ways of expressing themselves. The books will help me grow my social-emotional library and will be useful in having children learn about a variety of topics and discuss them during individual, small group sessions, or classroom lessons. I would love for them to have lap desks so they can still do the work associated with our lessons. Additionally, I often have students come to me who are in the middle of a crisis. The bean bags would help me give my students a comfortable spot to sit when they are in this state, it will help calm their emotions and provide a supportive environment for their social and emotional needs. Board games are always a fun and engaging alternative to learning about specific counseling-related topics. I will occasionally meet with students who are overly stimulated in class and will need something to "fidget" with to help with calming down. Having these gadgets that promote self-regulation and sensory skills handy will ensure I am fully prepared at all times.
