My Students

Our students are kind, energetic students who love community projects to help others! They are hard-working kids with a lot of grit who keep working until they succeed. They love playing with each other after the hard work is done!

My Project

They will learn how to be feelings detectives to explore the different signs their bodies exhibit when they experience different emotions. This will help them develop their own coping strategies to get back to being calm and ready to learn.

The Life Skills and Take Action books help develop many different areas around being part of a community and taking responsibility for their own behavior and learning.

Ultimately, we want to send our children out into the world with all the skills they need to be happy and successful on whatever path they choose.

Please help me support my in person and online third, fourth and fifth graders in developing these necessary skills before they head off to middle school and beyond!
