My Students

My students range in socioeconomic status and ability. I am so lucky to work with such a variety of students. My students are eager to learn and practice skills that I teach during my Guidance time. We work on things like: making and keeping friends, understanding our emotions, developing coping skills, working as a team, understanding how to keep themselves safe and SO much more! I love when I hear students make connections from previous lessons to our current topic. I am so fortunate to get to plant seeds and watch them grow and develop in the 6 years I have students.

My Project

These materials will help to fill a gap I have noticed with our students. We have many students who are facing food insecurity and, therefore, have a hard time focusing on school because they are hungry.

A snack closet was developed last school year and gave out over 500 snacks to students in need.

We saw an increase in student engagement, a decrease in behaviors AND students knew they were cared about on the most basic of levels. This project will help expand the snack closet to my second school of assignment- where there is a very large need.

Not only will snacks be provided for students, but materials will help me develop kits for self-regulation for our most needy of students. They will help me develop strategies that work for them and they will have something that is theres so they can learn to be an independent problem solver.
