My Students

I am a School Counselor. My school is a Dual Language School, which is a form of education were students are taught literacy and content in two languages. My counseling students are active learners, creative, and hard workers!

My goal is to help my students learn basic social-emotional skills so that they can be better equipped to cope in healthy and productive ways.

These skills require explicit teaching materials, organization supplies, and calming & visual aids, in order to promote empathy, responsibility, and accountability!

My Project

The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students will be used to introduce learning topics on anger, anxiety, coping, divorce, self-control, and much more. We just need your help in getting everything through our counseling door!

The Emotional Bingo, No More Bullies Board Game, Don't Stress Game, Self-Control Patrol Game, Positive Thinking Board Game, and The Coping Skills Game are just a few of the games I am requesting to complete my counseling room with therapeutic aids.

I will use these therapeutic board games in individual play therapy and group therapy sessions to teach how to manage conflict, change, bullying, mindfulness, and regulating feelings.

I am also requesting some office supplies for art therapy activities to help my students learn how to express their emotions through the medium of art.
