My Students

As an educator at a low-income/high poverty school, where 100% of my students receive free lunch and over 40% of them are identified as homeless, my students come to school faced with many challenges and disadvantages.

However, many of these students have low self-esteem and don't have much confidence in themselves.

Their lives are full of personal struggles and limits to almost no recognition, praise, or examples of positive discipline interactions and expectations. When these students come to school, I make it my number one priority in making sure that these students are instructed, taught, educated, and prepared to follow school and life expectations in a positive manner.

My Project

These independent student centers and calming down carts will help students to be self-sufficient, self-motivated, and well disciplined when managing their academic and social expectations in the classroom and the school setting.

When students in the classroom are struggling with social skills and academic requirements, teachers with these centers and carts will be able to help support students by providing them with carts filled with stressed balls, timers, social-emotional books, calming-coloring books, with pencils, calming tools, and self-regulating techniques.

Having these centers and carts in the classroom will allow teachers to focus on teaching students to be proactive, prepared, and productive in the classroom.
