Principals, supervisors, and co-workers – it’s time to shop for those sometimes overlooked but all too important people in your office – the school counselors! The first full week of February is our yearly celebration of the profession and is used as an opportunity to support and promote the role of the school counselor. We call it National School Counseling Week. You can check out the celebrations happening around the country via social media using the #NSCW18 (or the two numbers of the current year at the end)
Don’t let their hard work go unnoticed. A kind word, a coffee, some cookies are always nice. There are also nice things that you can buy that not only help us know you support us but also allow us to support our profession! Check out some great shopping ideas for your school counselors below to help celebrate National School Counseling Week.

You can find a the designs on two different sites (info on each below) for your shopping convenience.
If you are like most school counselors… …your space is at a premium. Your office is small, desk is cramped and sometimes you feel like a squirrel in the fall trying to pack all your papers somewhere that you can find before the end of the next decade. Me too.

Jeremy Goldman of PHSfit asked for a male version of Andrea Burston’s Wear to Work series – well Jeremy…here ya go. I guess getting voted best dressed at school qualifies me to write this article, but take from it what you will!
For June and July – I am going to feature a few of my new office favorites, but also going to share some tools that I totally dig outside of the office (since it is summer!). You may notice a cooking/travel theme for the non-school items…but hey – tis the season!
Hello fellow Geeks. I am going to start a new feature on The Counseling Geek this week – I am dubbing it the School Counselor Shopping List. I am not sure about you – but I am an avid online shopper, high quality item finder, and a seeker of good deals. I thought I could share some of my golden finds with you (and how I am using them in my counseling programs!
I will most likely post bi-monthly about some of the recent purchases (or wish list items) that have really been great for my professional growth, blogging, and counseling site purposes. I hope that this is helpful for some and I will try to give some personal experience reviews when applicable.
