My Students

I am a school counselor in a small town in eastern Ohio, Newton Falls. It is a town that has a ton of small town pride but has been hit hard economically with manufacturing jobs disappearing. Unfortunately, this area has been struck by the opioid epidemic as well. Many of our students live with grandparents, foster family or extended family. The basic social, coping, kindness skills for many of these student have been replaced with survival skills. I want to help break the cycle and teach the student the skills they will need to help them throughout life.

These students need love, support and the chance to learn about themselves anyhow they are capable of anything they put their minds too.

My Project

These books and games will help me teach, create and inspire a kindness community in our school. Working with these students to help them learn how to get through life with coping skills and taking care of their brains with mindfulness.

Each month I go into each K-5 classroom to try to instill empathy, kindness, and mindfulness to all the students in the school.

Teaching students these important skills is extremely important. Having stories such as "I can't do that, YET: Growth Mindset" to help them learn Growth Mindset. Or making learning coping skills fun with "Mad Dragon: An anger control game.

There are to many young people who do not learn these skills at home anymore. School is more than reading and writing, school is where students are learning about to take care of themselves, be better people and how to overcome obstacles.
