Top of 2016

My Favorite Posts of the Year

2016 was an excellent year!


I don’t know about you, but 2016 was a challenging, fun and overall – great year for me. I had to miss ASCA 2016, but had my son Joel which is a good excuse! The School Counselor Community Scholarship continues to grow each year – we are looking forward to awarding the funds to the applicants in the coming months. Plus I am still having fun (and finding time) to blog about once or twice a month. I love getting to learn with everyone.

I always like to look back at the end of each year and pick my favorite posts. This year – I am picking 3. Check out my Top of 2016 posts below. Happy Holidays from The Counseling Geek and family!

3 Habits of Efficient (Yet Caring) School Counselors School counselors, as you likely know, are busy creatures. We have our hands in 20 different things at one time and our attention is pulled in 10 different ways. We often must prioritize our actions and activities to ensure our students are served and our jobs get done

One of my tops because I feel this is a vital, but often forgotten, aspect of being a school counselor (or any professional really). Hope you enjoy this flashback.

#2: Putting The You In YouTube: Taking It To The Next Level

Using YouTube in my school counseling practice has become one of my favorites. I feel like it ebbs and flows because I find new ways I can utilize videos (both ones that I create and videos of others). There are so many great (and many not so great) videos available that have application to school counseling at any level. This tutorial shows you how to use it to help get information out to your stakeholders.
