My Students

My school is a Title I school based in Durham, NC. We serve a wide range of students coming from different backgrounds, and a serious number of them receiving reduce or free lunch.

Our school is looking for improvement everyday, investing in the best researched based ways to help our students, not only academically, but also meeting their social emotional needs.

I am a proud member of this community, and I am so amazed to see how our dedicated team of professionals are touching so many lives every day.

My Project

Creating a welcoming, safe and nurturing environment is good for every classroom, but it is even more important when school is the safest place for some of our kids.

Having a calm corner in the classroom where a student can just chill out when needed, and, with adult guidance, self regulate emotions, is a really powerful tool that will help them long term.

Aromatherapy contributes to create not only a climate of relax, but also to focus. Oil essence diffuser are a great tool to create this climate.

Also, flexible seating invites students to have a sense of comfort in the classroom.
