Mirror, Mirror, Now on the Wall

The project creator, fourth-grade teacher Julie Paulus, says her elementary school is focusing on social and emotional learning this year.

"We have focused on being positive with the students. We have brought in Christopher Milo who has 13 messages that range from 'I am kind, I am positive, I am genuine'; and it has snowballed in the building that these students are not only showing they care about themselves, they care about each other."

In late February, Paulus asked the community for donations of mirrors in good condition, framed, lightweight and no larger than 11 x 14 inches. Donations came in and went up.
“I know with my classroom of fourth-graders, they need to feel good about themselves. These mirrors let them see themselves and as they read the statement, they see themselves as the leader, reader, doctor, lawyer,” Paulus said in an email. “It shows them they have worth, and they will be someone and CAN BE someone.”

“As a staff, we are trying to help the students understand and manage their emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, build positive relationships, and make responsible decisions,” Paulus said.

Christopher Milo, friend of Glover CLC and APS, offers his support for students on his website. Take a look.
