My Students

My Head Start students come from the inner-city and do not have as many advantages as students from other areas. As a teacher, it is my responsibility to make sure they have what they need to learn and succeed in school and in the world. I teach at a Title I school in Nebraska which means that 93% of the students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My students live among violence and uncertainty in their families and neighborhoods.

My school is a safe place for them, a place for them to be nurtured, loved, and prepared for the future.

My Project

Having just attended a training on Conscious Discipline and seeing how well it works in the classroom, I want to implement the strategies in my own classroom! The Feeling Buddies toolkit will give me all the tools I need to make that happen. The Brain Boogie Boosters CD will enhance the children's learning through music and movement, which is very important at the preschool level.

The Safe Place rug will create a cozy spot in the classroom for students who need to take some time to themselves.

The Baby Doll Circle Time kit will allow students to take the skills they have learned and teach it to their baby dolls, thus reinforcing what they have learned. The I Love You Rituals book will help us create loving rituals between teachers and children, strengthening our bonds and making our classroom family that much closer.
