My Students

CHEC is an education campus comprised of LMMS and BMHS located in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC.

Our students are 64% Latino, 32% Black, Asian 1%, White 1% and Multiple Races 1%.

Students identified as ELL or bilingual is 36% and identified as Special Education is 11%. Our school is a Title I school which means the student base where at least 40% come from low-income families.

My Project

We are DC public school social workers and we are working with a group of students on a mural project. This will be a therapeutic group that will focus on healing and social emotional learning through the process of making art. Our high school and middle school students who will be participating in this group have experienced loss and trauma and will utilize the group as a way to work through their trauma and or loss. During the creation of this mural, we aspire to help our students process and heal through self-expression and exploration.
