I am a school counselor in a diverse school with approximately 500 students that range from Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade. My students come from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and socioeconomic statuses.
Our students have huge hearts and love to learn!
Each one of them is precious and a joy to have at our school. They are energetic and full of life!
An important part of my role as a school counselor is to help students and teachers build a positive classroom culture through an emphasis on social-emotional learning. Social and emotional learning can enhance a student's ability to succeed in school, careers, and life.
These books would be used to teach these skills to classrooms through Guidance Lessons. In addition, they would be used to help students individually who are struggling, as well as in small groups.
Social-emotional learning helps students learn how to identify and manage their emotions, relate to others, show empathy, make good decisions, and set and achieve goals.
