The Best Version of Me

Help me give my students the tools they need to be successful. All of the items will assist me in counseling our students and assisting them in understanding the importance of an education.

My Students

I am one of the lucky ones as I get the opportunity to work with every student at the school. Our school is over 90% free and reduced lunch and despite the struggles of poverty our students continue to show up everyday. We focus on what our students need to be successful in life. By helping to supply our students with tools for ongoing Mental Wellness we are able to help them cultivate the best version of themselves.

My Project

These materials will allow for our students to engage in hands on learning. Our students will be able to better identify the barriers that prevent them from being successful and how to show off the best versions of themselves.

Many of our students have faced trauma that is impossible to leave at the front door.

It's hard for a student to focus on an assignment when they are unsure of what the end of the day brings. By providing them with coping skills, community resources, and on site counseling we are able to alleviate some of the burden our families carry.
