My Students

Our school is a small Title I school in Derby, KS. We have just less than 300 students in our school and 70% are on free or reduced meals.

I love working with my students.

They come from diverse backgrounds that provide unique challenges in their daily lives.

At our school, we are a family. We know where these children come from. We know their past and we want to change the course of their future. We believe in these students and we want them to believe in themselves!

My Project

I need professional development items to help with school culture, mindfulness, and inclusive teaching. The materials will assist our school in progressing circles throughout our building. Teachers will be given the opportunity to practice circles and mindfulness and extend those skills into their classrooms. I will also use these materials to help teachers incorporate mindfulness activities into their classrooms. Finally, I will use the materials to plan for my work with students.

These materials will help me become a better school social worker and fine tune my skills.

They will also help me assist teachers in their own professional development.
