I have been working closely with a student since last year. We meet together virtually and work on different Social Emotional Learning skills. This student messaged me several times asking to meet on a day that we don’t normally meet together. I met with him the following day during our regular meeting time. I checked-in with him to make sure that everything was okay. He let me know that he was super stressed out and wanted to talk through it with me because I always make him feel better. I asked him what strategies he used to calm himself down (we work a lot on positive self-talk together). He went through the different positive things he told himself and the breathing strategies he used and said he was able to calm down and get all his work done and catch up. It’s super awesome to be able to help students be able to independently cope with their stress and anxiety and add important skills to their toolbelt.Communities In Schools of Puyallup Site Coordinator
