IT WAS REALLY HARD FOR ME. >> LOOK AT YOUR EXPONENT HERE. >> Reporter: THE GIRLS WERE STRUGGLING IN CLASS, EVEN AFTER LEARNING ENGLISH. THERE\u2019S IMPROVED WORK AND PRESENTATIONS HERE, AND THAT\u2019S HARD TO DO WHEN YOU\u2019RE STILL IN THIS SPOT. COUNSELOR ELOISA STEPPED IN TO COUNSELOR ELOISA STEPPED IN TO HELP WITH A NOT-SO-HEALTHY BREAKFAST. >> HEY. THEY LOVE DOUGHNUTS. I ALWAYS BELIEVE THAT FOOD FEEDS I ALWAYS BELIEVE THAT FOOD FEEDS THE SOUL. AND IF THEY FEEL NURTURED WITHIN AND IF THEY FEEL NURTURED WITHIN GROUP, THEY\u2019RE MORE LIKELY TO EXPRESS THEIR FEELINGS. >> Reporter: THEY TALK ABOUT MISSING THEIR FAMILY BACK HOME, VIOLENCE AND ABUSE THAT THEY SAW, TRYING TO GET HERE, AND IF ANYONE CAN RELATE, IT\u2019S ELOISA. >> WHEN I CAME TO THIS COUNTRY, I REMEMBER BEING IN A T-SHIRT I REMEMBER BEING IN A T-SHIRT BECAUSE I DIDN\u2019T HAVE CLOTHES. I REMEMBER GOING THROUGH CULTURE SHOCK, NOT WANTING TO GO TO SCHOOL, NOT WANTING TO GO. I THINK THE CULTURE SHOCK WAS THE BIGGEST PIECE, AND A LOT OF THE BIGGEST PIECE, AND A LOT OF PEOPLE DON\u2019T UNDERSTAND THAT. >> Reporter: BUT ALL OF THEM DO, AND TAKING JUST A FEW MINUTES AND TAKING JUST A FEW MINUTES BEFORE SCHOOL TO SHARE HAS HELPED MORE THAN THEIR SPIRIT. >> I GOT GREAT FEEDBACK FROM MY TEACHERS. THEY WERE LIKE, HEY, THESE STUDENTS ARE GETTING MORE CONFIDENT. >> Reporter: THE GROUP SETTING IS ALSO BECAUSE THERE\u2019S JUST SO MANY OF THEM, TOO MANY FOR ONE COUNSELOR TO REACH. SHE WAS BEING CREATIVE TO TRY TO HELP THEM ALL. >> THIS SCHOOL, NOBODY\u2019S GOING TO JUDGE YOU, WHERE YOU COME FROM AND HOW YOU SPEAK. FROM AND HOW YOU SPEAK. >> Reporter: AND ALL THE DATA SHOWING THIS SIMPLE BREAKFAST BUNCH HAS TAKEN A POPULATION THAT WAS KNOWN TO STRUGGLE IN CLASS AND SET THE TABLE FOR SUCCESS.","video_id":"2196709443819","video_length":"163330","video_provider":"mpx","short_video_excerpt":"","show":"","event":"","genre":"","mpx_download_pid_mobile_low":"L6coecvra3RP","pid_streaming_web_mobile_low":"","mpx_download_pid_mobile_standard":"O0gHcATorZkW","pid_streaming_mobile_standard":"7y6N_o9zO2BR","media_pid":"57669_nGt7dg","alleypack_schedule_unpublish":"","feed_remote_id":"mpx_2196709443819","feed_thumbnail_url":""},"category_names":{"1098":"Local","329284":"News","1233":"Carter In The Classroom"},"tag_names":{"373":"Carter in the classroom","186":"Fort Worth"},"custom_data":{"ContentPartner":"None","Source":"WEBFM","SyndicationAllowed":"true","mSNVideoCategories":"MSN Video v4 Connector-most watched news","mSNVideoContentSupplierID":"NBC_Local","mSNVideoCountry":"us","subtitle":"nosubtitle","uploadedByTeam":"1","youtubeChannel":"None","sentiment":"Neutral"}},"share_links":{"facebook":"https:\/\/www.facebook.com\/sharer\/sharer.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nbcdfw.com%2Fnews%2Flocal%2Fcarter-in-the-classroom%2Fhow-a-fort-worth-school-helps-esl-students-excel%2F3241948%2F&amp;How%20a%20Fort%20Worth%20School%20Helps%20ESL%20Students%20Excel","twitter":"https:\/\/twitter.com\/intent\/tweet?text=How%20a%20Fort%20Worth%20School%20Helps%20ESL%20Students%20Excel&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nbcdfw.com%2Fnews%2Flocal%2Fcarter-in-the-classroom%2Fhow-a-fort-worth-school-helps-esl-students-excel%2F3241948%2F","email":"mailto:?body=How%20a%20Fort%20Worth%20School%20Helps%20ESL%20Students%20Excel%0D%0A%0D%0Ahttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.nbcdfw.com%2Fnews%2Flocal%2Fcarter-in-the-classroom%2Fhow-a-fort-worth-school-helps-esl-students-excel%2F3241948%2F"},"bylines":[{"description":"<span class=\"screen-reader-text\">Wayne Carter <\/span><!-- wp:paragraph -->\nWayne Carter is NBC 5's Education Reporter.
