My Students

I'm an elementary school counselor, I work with students K-5! They are lovely and passionate about so many things. I spend my time with students in the classroom on problem-solving and developing character traits such as empathy, gratitude, integrity, and citizenship to name a few. In my small groups, I focus on grief support, self-esteem, friendship skills, and anger management. I also help students individually with self-regulation, de-escalation, and healthy thought processes.

Counselors don't always get funding or resources to adequately help our students.

I am always on the search for innovative ways to engage students in their social-emotional learning.

My Project

As an elementary school counselor, so often, I have students who need help learning how to be better humans. We work on social skills, managing emotions, and learning coping skills together. At a young age, this involves a lot of playing for my students. We do our work through games, reading stories, and practicing together.

With this project, I hope to add to my collection of social-emotional games, books, and resources for my students and teachers.

I am in the middle of my second year, and so I'm still in the building years of putting together a full program at my school. Every day I am strengthening relationships with my students, their parents, and their teachers. Everyone needs support, this is my way of trying to provide that for them!
