Building Confidence


I’ve been working with at a middle school with a boy who has special needs. Next year he’ll be in high school. Not just any high school, but a fast-pace one without the student support he’s used to. One day, during our five minute walk/break, I asked him if he was excited about going to high school. There was hesitation. Then I interjected, “—Or are you a bit nervous?” He answered, “Nervous.” After school, I went home and compiled a list of songs he could hear and watch on You Tube. The songs all have positive messages and are ones my mom would refer to at certain times in my life. On the day of promotion, I gave him the list.I hope you share these with anyone who may be facing some fear, big or small in your eyes. The videos I chose were geared toward what I thought this particular student would like. You may find the same song with different artists.
