My students have had to deal with a lot of trauma in their young lives. They look at school as the place where they can forget all of the hardships that they have at home and they can truly be a kid. Our students come from low socio-economic backgrounds and many of the students have trouble getting the necessities for school.
I teach in a Title I school where 100% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch.
They love to learn and are very energetic. They deserve the best but with our low budget, we are not able to give all of our students what they need to be successful.
My sixth graders will use this social-emotional curriculum to learn skills and strategies to help them be successful at school and at home. This curriculum focuses on understanding their own emotions and the emotions of others, how to regulate themselves when feeling strong emotions, and to problem solve in difficult situations.
This curriculum will foster the development of compassionate, proactive youth, who will use their skills to positively impact their school and their community.
Through engaging in this curriculum students will learn to be resilient amidst personal and interpersonal challenges with respect for themselves and others.
These sixth graders will lead our school in becoming school leaders.
