It's National School Counseling Week so let's take a moment to thank our school counselors for their efforts in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.
From the California Department of Education:
This special week honors school counselors for the important role they play in helping students examine their talents, strengths, abilities, and interests. Counselors work in professional partnerships with teachers and support personnel to provide an educational system where students can realize their true potential. As all educators focus their efforts on improving academic achievement for all students, it is important that we recognize school counselors for their continuing efforts in reducing barriers to learning and in providing the support necessary for all students to achieve at the highest level.
My high school counselor helped me look over college options and and plan for my future. Thanks, Mrs. Nichols!
