My Students

I am a school counselor for students in third, fourth and fifth grades in a Title One school in Summerville, South Carolina. I conduct classroom guidance lessons, small group counseling and individual counseling. We cover topics including bullying, personal body safety, empathy, problem solving and diversity. I talk with students about their lives inside and outside of school. As school counselors, we work to meet students' academic, social/emotional and career preparation needs.

The materials in this project will allow me to build my counseling library and provide valuable resources to teachers.

My Project

Books that will be funded through this project will allow students to increase their social/emotional, academic, and career skills through literacy. The books will also serve as great resources to classroom teachers for morning meetings and to address social concerns as they arise in classrooms. This project promotes and reinforces school counseling topics and literacy at the same time! Students can use these books for independent reading and to build their reading fluency. Classroom teachers and school counselors can use these books to increase students' reading comprehension skills when books are used as read a-louds.
