Better late than never, right?! Between school counseling and theatre, I've had very little time lately to keep up with blogging.
So, what did I do to celebrate National School Counseling Week? Well, every day, I wore a different school counseling t-shirt, which was fun. In the past, I've also given my staff certificates to show my appreciation of their constant love and support.
On Friday, I had a fun surprise from my 1st graders (left). Their banner was hanging outside my office door. I almost cried!
Overall, NSCW is one area I'd like to improve in. I think it's hard to promote and celebrate ourselves, because it can feel a little self-indulgent. However, like it or not, we still need to "sell" our services, especially now that money is tight for most school districts. We must show that we are essential members of the school team.
