Love Yourself - School Counselor Introduction




From Emmy Marvin

Hi, fellow counselors! I wanted to share a fun little video I made over the long weekend. I am a first-year counselor in Ripon, WI. I made this to share with my elementary school students this week as part of my introduction! I hope it is a fun way for them to engage with me and get a better picture of what I do!

For those who have asked - the entire thing was created with an iPad. I bought the karaoke version of the song from iTunes, and used a website called Transposr to get it into the right key for my voice. I then recorded the track with Garage Band (an app all iPads have). I filmed the entire thing with an iPad camera, and then edited it using iMovie (another standard iPad app). The entire thing, start to finish, took 3 hours. The apps on the iPad are SUPER user friendly! My advice is to have a game plan going into filming so you can film in order - it will save a TON of editing time!
LYRICS BELOW FOR THOSE WHO ASKED!! Feel free to show the video, or better yet feel free to modify the lyrics and create your own!
For all the times you may be havin’ a bad day
All you have to do is say my name
Don’t be scared to ask for me, for goodness sake
Don’t want you cryin’ on your own, with heartache
So I wanted to write a song
Cause I didn’t want anyone thinkin’ I don’t care, I do
And, I am here for you when
When you need someone to lean on
And I-think you should know somethin’, so I made this soundtrack
So you understand that
That I really like you, and I mean everyone
And I’m here to help you so we all get along
And to-teach you those skills is my job
So we-all know what’s going on
I hope you know
My office is a safe zone
So if you’d like, some help, it don’t take much
Oh, you can sign this slip yourself
You’ll see me in, your rooms, so I can teach you
Teach you all just how to love yourselves
Now I will teach you how to treat your school friends
And how to most effectively talk to them
We’ll learn to have a growth mindset and listen
We’ll talk about diversity and kindness
And we’re probably gonna sing some songs
Learn about respect, responsibility, n’ leadership
The Tiger Way, you know it
And we’ll talk about your self-esteem
Cause I think you should know somethin’, as a matter of fact
I should really tell you that
That I really like you, and I mean everyone
And I’m here to help you so we all get along
And to teach you those skills is my job
So we-all know what’s going on
I hope you know
My office is a safe zone
So if you’d like, some help, it don’t take much
Oh, you can sign this slip yourself
You’ll see me in, your rooms, so I can teach you
Teach you all just how to love yourselves
{INSTRUMENTAL}
For all the times you may be feelin’ so small
Or for the times when you feel nothing at all
Don’t ever be afraid to come down my hall
You can even play with my cool stress balls
So if you’d like, some help, it don’t take much
Oh, you can sign this slip yourself
You’ll see me in, your rooms, so I can teach you
Teach you all just how to love yourselves
So if you’d like, some help, it don’t take much
Oh, you can sign this slip yourself
You’ll see me in, your rooms, so I can teach you
Teach you all just how to love yourselves
