My Students

My students are all unique and adventurous in their own ways. We enjoy making learning, all while learning the content material. Each day my students struggle with focus and outside distractions. Many facing challenges bigger than we have seen in our lives. They are my heroes and each day they remind me how much I love what I do. Growing up I remember my grandpa saying, "Find something you love to do and you won't work a day in your life." He was totally right.

My Project

The Do Terra Essential Oils will change the environment of my classroom. Diffusing Lavender, On Guard, and other essential oils will promote a calming, healthy environment. These children in my classroom come from low income homes and face great challenges outside of the school. Lack of sleep, love, and emotional/physical needs makes learning and focusing tough. Their immune systems are also compromised from needs going unmet. Being able to come to school and focus is the last thing they want to do. However, we can change that! Essential Oils have been studied and proven to promote a more calming and healthier environment in school classrooms. Essential oils such as "On Guard" also promotes immune system health and will keep my low income students healthy and able to come to school.

With these essential oils, my students will be able to calm their hearts and be able to focus on the subjects at hand, rather than the struggles they face outside of school.

How awesome would it be for these kids to feel safe, secure, and healthy in my classroom, because of the oils that are being diffused?
