My Students

My students are working on their second chance at earning their high school diploma. Many of my students are experiencing life stressors including financial and emotional challenges that make it difficult for them to succeed in a traditional high school. They are now attending a school that believes in a wrap-around approach to helping them succeed. I support them in their fresh start at success alongside a wonderful team of teachers who put student needs above all else.

My Project

I love to provide counseling to my students when they are feeling relaxed. These materials will help them relax and allow them to open up about their troubles. Having a myriad of colors to paint with and sketchbooks that are inspirational will inspire them and also let them be in a safe space to express themselves. They will say what is on their mind as they create images that help them process their trauma. Art therapy helps bring my students to a place where they can unpack the issues bothering them. These materials will support my therapy and help my students. The putty is also helpful in relaxing my students as they have their therapy session. Thank you for considering my project and caring about my students.
