ANFSCD – Free Father’s Day Card Activity

Cardstore is offering a completely FREE (including shipping) customizable father’s day card. Many students may not be able to afford any type of gift so this could be a cool activity to do with your students if you have access to a computer lab. You can help your students customize and send their dad a high quality card. Fathers play a vital role in students’ lives and many do not have a male father figure, so perhaps encourage…

ANFSCD: Two text resources to share!

Two texts that can enlighten both your students and you! I am finishing up reading through So, You Are Going to College?! 2nd Edition  by San Bolkan, PhD, professor of communication at CSU Long Beach, which is a very power-packed, but short book that will give any upper class high school student head start when getting ready to head off to college. The content is high-quality and written in a very entertaining way…

ANFSCD: ScheduleOnce: Take the work out of setting up meetings!

ANFSCD: ScheduleOnce: Take the work out of setting up meetings!

One of my favorite tools that I don’t have to think about! One of the nice things about starting a counseling program from scratch at a new school where there was little/nothing before you got there is that you have full input on what to bring in with you.

As I develop my own goals, I would love to read some of yours posted in the comments below or via email. I hope to enhance my idea of the plethora of different…

ANFSCD: Moment of Self Reflection

ANFSCD: Moment of Self Reflection

I learned something new about myself last week… I thought I would take a few minutes and self-reflect and share some thoughts with you that may help you at some point. Background: Last week we had a middle school student pass away unexpectedly in a pretty unclear circumstance. Details are still not released officially and we are not sure if they will be, but needless to say it was devastating to our two school sites. The…

Follow-Up: My Interview Kit

Follow-Up: My Interview Kit

Marketing Myself and Being Prepared On Tuesday, I posted a video blog about the process I took (and a process you can take too!) to construct a digital professional portfolio. This week I have been busy constructing my interview kit and I wanted to share that with you as well. Looking at it, I feel like it is a lot – but I think will be well prepared to answer the questions and show evidence with the arsenal I bring with me…
