My Students

As a school counselor, I serve over 500 students K-5 in discovering themselves through social-emotional wellness. I have students come to me from different socioeconomic levels, learning styles and cultural backgrounds, for help with their problem-solving and educational decisions. We encourage them to take a socially conscious leadership role that helps create a more positive, unified and respectful school environment. All children deserve to learn in a safe, supportive and dynamic environment. Our goal is to unleash each child's full potential.

My Project

Students will write with colorful pens on Post-it notes to add to our Compliment and Kindness Bulletin Board. We are kicking off Our Great Kindness Challenge Campaign soon at our school. A group of students came to me with the idea of a bulletin board where students can take a post-it note that fills their needs and leave one for someone else to take with them. They are so excited to launch this project. Students have already come up with ideas of what they want to write on the first post-it notes. I can’t wait for this project to be funded!
