My Students

This diverse school captured my heart over 10 years ago. As the School Counselor, it’s my job to support students academic and social emotional needs. Since this is a title-1 school, the needs are high and now during a pandemic, we have to prioritize good mental health strategies. During my ‘Leadership’ classes, students will learn strategies to help them with mindfulness, self-control and empathy.

It would be so helpful to have a class set of yoga mats to utilize both inside and out.

Please help us fund mats so students can comfortably participate in stretching and yoga activities. We all know we need to teach children healthy coping habits now more than ever!

My Project

All students need help making healthy choices especially during these unprecedented times. Anxiety, trauma, and stress is real and more prevalent now more than ever. Everyone in education needs positive coping strategies.

As the School Counselor, I want to have a positive, comfortable environment for students to practice mindfulness and self-control.

A class set of yoga mats will provide a comfortable space both inside and out as we work through our lessons on mindfulness, self-awareness, and positive coping skills! In order to thrive academically, students' mental health has to be nurtured.
