ANFSCD – Free Father’s Day Card Activity

…ole model that they look up to. There are many designs that students can insert photos, text, or other creative things. I sent one to my father! *I will from time to time post And now for something completely different (ANFSCD) posts that may not be directly related to counseling, but have an application or I feel that may be of interest to those wanting to expand their understanding of technology. It may also just be a sweet resource…

ANFSCD: Help Me Set My SMART Goals!

ANFSCD: Help Me Set My SMART Goals!

Calling all PSC’s! That time has come, the first day of school has come and gone for me and for many of you. That means our principals (and maybe ourselves if we are on top of things) are calling for our yearly goals. I am curious of what you have set your goals to be this year? 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…

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. It is one thing to change what has been going on for a long time, but when nothing has been happening – people are very open to trying new things. Among the first (FREE) things…

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…

Follow-Up: My Interview Kit

…kets, but it creates a professional looking product. Imagine if you just wrote your name on the CD with a Sharpie. I also used Avery’s website label developer to integrate the background from my portfolio onto the disc label. I printed address labels with the title of the disc and my contact info to put on the jacket. I am pretty happy with the turn out. 3. Letters of Recommendation: I included the standard three letters in all of the…

School Counselor Tech Tools: Learnerator and minutes.io

…y be better fit for something like Evernote, but a simple get things done approach is this tool’s powerhouse. One thing that I really like about the tool is how action oriented it is. You can create categories and then label them as “decision” “action” “info” etc. This lets people reviewing minutes later have a much more streamlined approach to find out what needs to happen. From that, you can also…
