My Students

Being the school counselor, one of my main responsibilities is to address the needs of the "whole child" and treat every student holistically. My students come with varying needs, and over 90% belong to impoverished homes. Their diverse cultures, needs, and experiences mean that one size does not fit all when it comes to guidance and counseling.

Due to their parents' economic status after Hurricane Maria and Irma, and the fact that these children attend a Title I school where resources are limited, basic needs such as access to school uniforms and school supplies are always ongoing issues.

We are slowly receiving students impacted by Hurricane Maria, who need my assistance more than ever.

At my school, I wear many hats and I facilitate a vast diversity of students' and teachers' needs alike. Currently, the capacity of my school budget has been limited and challenged due to the impact of Hurricane Irma. As the school counselor, I take a very active role in my students' lives. I visit classrooms daily and give presentations that build character and educate the students about hygiene, core values, and social behavior.

My Project

A great number of my students are ELL/ESOL who were displaced during the earthquake in Haiti and relocated to South Florida several years ago. Now we have students coming in from islands affected by Hurricane Irma who also need assistance in terms of clothing and school supplies.

More than half of my students have no access to basic commodities in their households, including school supplies and uniforms.

Almost everyday, I have to try to accommodate a child who came to school out of uniform because they just migrated from an impoverished or devastated island or their parents cannot afford to purchase what is needed for school.

Unfortunately, due to limited funding, I am running out of ways to provide uniforms formal wear, and am seeking your donations so that I can have uniform shorts, blouses, dress skirts, neck tie bows, and polo shirts to assist these students who are in dire need of clothing.
