My Students

As a school counselor to an elementary school in a low income/high poverty neighborhood, I have become very familiar with the everyday struggles that our students face. While I cannot change the environment in which the students call home, I strive to provide all the resources and tools for our students at school in order to help them achieve both academically and socially.

Our students crave the love and support that is provided by our teachers and staff on a daily basis.

While many of our students come from single-parent homes with multiple siblings, positive attention is not always given. School is their "safe place." Just as we hold expectations for our students, our students hold expectations for us that go beyond the academic curriculum.

Our students are young, bright and determined. Despite the apparent achievement gaps and economic status of our families, our students are determined to grow and positively impact our world.

My Project

Our counseling center, known as the Coyote Center, dreams of providing a yoga experience to our elementary students during recess time. This experience would allow students who haven't found their place at recess to have a safe space to exercise their minds and bodies. They will not have to search for that elusive friend on the playground at recess but, rather, they will know their exact location.

The Coyote Center offers an alternative refuge to the playground through yoga exercises geared towards student learning and social connection.

This yoga experience for students provides an opportunity for them to learn how to manage stress through breathing and healthy movement, increase self-confidence and self-image, and be a part of healthy, non-competitive group where they have a common thread that bonds, yoga. We are requesting yoga mats to support this activity.
