My Students

I am a school counselor in Paterson, NJ. The students are hard-working from diverse backgrounds with all cultures, religions, and ethnicities represented. Last year, my school raised money for areas affected by hurricanes. In addition, during Red Ribbon Week, they collected food for the local food pantry in town. We are having the same fundraisers this year and many more. For example, we will be raising money for breast cancer research in October.

This is an amazing school with dedicated faculty, students, and parents.

Paterson is a very large inner-city school district. Connecting with students while they are in elementary school will have a huge impact on the rest of their school years.

My Project

Every month we recognize students who have demonstrated fairness, responsibility, respect, etc. as part of our character education program which focuses on social and emotional learning. Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

As the students grow socially and emotionally, teachers and support staff are presented with numerous and more organic opportunities for verbal and tangent reminders about the meaning of each character trait.

We know that making good character choices every day in all you do can be hard work! So we also encourage our students with school-wide character recognition through our monthly assemblies. Incentives and rewards for students would be a great addition to this monthly celebration.
