Red Bead Moments

Students are given red wooden beads when they share significantly stressful experiences, following Miss Kendra’s lead in saying, “This red bead is for your strength.”

Letter Writing

Through writing letters to Miss Kendra and receiving a letter back from her, students unburden themselves and learn to articulate their thoughts and feelings.

Miss Kendra's Red Hat

The red hat represents the magic of Miss Kendra, for Miss Kendra can be imagined by each student in their own way, of any age, of any race, of any nationality. All that matters is taking the time to make a child feel seen and heard.

The Legend

The Legend of Miss Kendra is a story of a woman who went through her own healing journey and greets each child at school with questions about how they are doing.

Miss Kendra’s List

Miss Kendra’s List is the backbone of the Program. It stands up to the major adversities in a child’s life. The List is a Declaration to Protect Children!

  • be harmed because of their race, religion, or gender.
  • be left alone for a long time.
  • be bullied or told they are no good.
  • be touched in their private parts.
  • have to see other people hurt each other.
  • be scared by gun violence at home or in school.


  • it makes a child feel bad about themselves.
  • it makes a child not care about school.
  • it makes a child feel sad or scared or lonely.
  • it makes a child feel angry and want to fight too much.
  • it makes a child feel like not trying hard or giving up.
