"I love it when you call me 'guidance' counselor," said no School Counselor ever.

I don't know about you, but it completely irks me when someone calls me a "guidance" counselor. I could go on and on about how "guidance counselor" is an outdated term and does not encompass everything we do as SCHOOL COUNSELORS such as support the academic, personal/social, and career development needs of students.

I created the Some E-cards below as a funny response to the "g"-word dilemma. Click on the images below to share them with your school counselor friends and colleagues. I think this is a fun way to advocate for SCHOOL COUNSELORS.
