It's not too late to celebrate and advocate!

This week is National School Counseling Week!

First of all I want to wish you a heartfelt Happy National School Counseling Week to you!

I have been so fortunate to connect with you through this blog and through various forms of social media. I am thankful for you and I want you to know that you are appreciated this week and everyday!

I believe the purpose of National School Counseling Week is to advocate for our profession and to educate stakeholders about how we impact the lives of students! Even if no one in your building/district thanks you for the work that you do or recognizes you this week, make a pledge to yourself and our profession to educate others this week about school counseling. Share with your stakeholders how what you do makes a difference in the lives of students. Whether you read a message on the morning announcements (ASCA has prepared announcements that are ready to go!) or put messages in teachers' mailboxes about ways you support students, a little effort can make a big impact.

What is one thing you will do this week to educate stakeholders and advocate for school counseling?

  1. I'm putting together an advisory board for our program. I've got some parents and staff members who are excited about being able to have some input into our counseling & guidance curriculum! 

  2. We are thanking our fellow staff members and administrators for being part of the team and I recently began thinking about ways to better promote our program and services.  I have had a professional goal this year about utilizing technology to get the word out as well.  Your blog is an inspiration for me and has greatly improved my life as a school counselor.  Thanks!

  3. I love following your blog! You have so many great ideas! I'm not so new to many admin. counseling duties even though this is just my 2nd year as a PK-12 counselor. I am, however, new to the counseling ideas/tools side of my job. I love that you share so many links along with ideas so I can repeat, adapt and/or go find quickly what you've done. Thanks so much. I'm sure you're greatly appreciated on your job!
