My Students

Many of my students literally race off the bus and in the door every day. "Good morning," from staff is often paired with, "please walk," and, "careful on the stairs." These enthusiastic learners all struggle with social and emotional issues that make success in a general education classroom challenging, for now. Instead of attending their local schools, our current twenty students come together here for instruction in a small group, therapeutic environment.

My students range from kindergarten to eighth grade and come from diverse backgrounds.

They require a broad range of educational and emotional supports. Our classrooms are social laboratories, where they learn to understand their feelings and get along with each other so they can be successful students.

My Project

I've done the training, I have the space and the students have the time. Now, we need some additional materials to really supercharge our movement and mindfulness practices.

New yoga mats will encourage the students to step on the mat and practice!

Lining our shelves with engaging titles will help me share the benefits of breathing, meditating and moving mindfully. A few toys, like the scarves, wands, expanding spheres and stretchy balls will help keep our sessions playful and fun.

Altogether, the items I've requested will make our mindful movement space more inviting and inspiring. Students will step up and learn to explore their inner worlds, finding a sense of peace that will enable them to reach their educational potential.
