My Students

Our students are resilient, diverse and energetic kiddos. From students with special needs to students who have experienced different levels of trauma, to students in need of alternative learning methods, my students continue to show up, ready to push forward despite challenges they've experienced. Our students love to be out in nature, exploring, playing, and learning together.

Our students need love, care, and connection.

Despite the many challenges that come from living in the community, such as violence, drugs, gangs, and incarceration, my students need ways to help them to cope and heal. This year, we will be focusing on teaching Social and Emotional skills to all students to ensure they are equipped with the tools they need to be successful.

My Project

Help support our students and their social and emotional learning! Our Students love to read about ways to calm their minds and bodies, and these books would help build our library. Having images students can look to really helps to create possibilities in their minds. Workbooks like Coping Skills can really help our students learn ways to rewire their brains and create healthy habits.

Many of our students are special learners with unique learning styles, and we are looking to build sensory experiences for them.

We need materials that can appeal to their needs. Sensory putty, kinetic sand, yoga pose games and tents can really help to boost student engagement and help them feel grounded.
