My Students

My school is located in North Charleston and serves around 550 students in PreK3-5th grade. As the upper grades school counselor, I work with students on processing emotions and feelings. These kiddos are hysterical, thoughtful, curious and loving every single day!

Many of the students I see need help in processing previous or current traumas.

Some students have endured more than an adult ever could, with their neighborhoods at times being unsafe for them to be outside. Their social/emotional issues range from anger management, impulse control, a need for grief coping skills and affective communication skills. These students are willing to discover and explore strategies that can help them be more successful inside and outside of school.

My Project

Students have enough on their minds these days when it comes to school and home. It's important for them to have skills to block away any distractions from learning and pro-social behaviors. The meditation cushions and yoga mats will be used by 3rd-5th graders in their exploration of yoga and meditation practices. These cushions will provide comfortable seating and the yoga mats will provide a safe way for students to learn yoga.

Mindfulness is a way for students to quietly connect with their body through movement, music or stillness.

Meditation is a way for students to silently connect to their thoughts. Thoughts can be overwhelming at times, but knowing how to manage them makes us more successful.

These requested items will give students the chance to do meditation and mindfulness to help connect their thoughts with their body! The materials are needed to help our students achieve greater success!
