My Students

My students are some of the most loving students I have ever met. They are very excited to learn and eager to have an adult to connect with. I spend my days with students either in the classroom, one-on-one, or in a small group teaching.

During these times, I get to see my students shine and I get the rare opportunity to really understand my students, their lives, and what drives them.

Being a school counselor, I also get to know their hardships and problems that arise. Many of my students struggle with self-regulation and learning how to make deep social connections with students. They are so special because they never give up, despite their hardships, they are so resilient. I am honored to call myself their school counselor.

My Project

These materials will make a difference to my students because they will be able to utilize them in order to calm their minds and bodies. Many of my students have a hard time regulating their emotions and in order to do that, they need to learn the skills to do so. Having the Amazon Fire tablet with many different self-calming apps can help students to do just that, calm down and get worries off their minds.

When students can self-regulate, they can be successful students.

Furthermore, when they learn to self-regulate, they are successful adults. We all need to learn these skills within life. These tools can help them do that.
