My Students

I am the only school counselor for over 700 amazing students. Ninety percent of our students are Latino and 76% are from low-income families. About 11% of our students are considered special needs. Our students are bright and creative and come from hard-working, loving families that want to see their children succeed.

My students are eager to learn and happy to be in school; however, school can be challenging for students who lack the social skills to make friends, manage their emotions, and/or resolve conflicts positively.

My Project

Students should be recognized for their success in school and have the opportunity to be rewarded for the goals they achieve. With this popcorn machine, students will be motivated to continue to work hard while recognizing them for their effort. Additionally, having a popcorn machine will be a great addition at our school family events and gives us an opportunity to raise funds. The funds raised will be used to offset costs for field trips, sports teams, and school events like dances and family reading nights.

Having this popcorn machine will not only provide an incentive to our hard-working students but will also teach our students, parents, and teachers how to work together to raise money for their school.

Our goal is to help bring our students and their families together to work, share ideas, and show support for our school.
