Learn how to run a successful course fair at your high school to help students plan their schedules for upcoming years that take into account balance, rigor and requirements.
There are lots of opinions and feelings regarding what we are referred to professionally. School counselor or guidance counselor. I have some thoughts on the topic.
Dear David Coleman of The Collegeboard – this letter is for you.
I like to spend time teaching you new tech tools but also help you, school counselors and educators, use your time, expertise and energy efficiently. This video will help you learn how to use 100% free tools in Google Drive with Forms, Sheets, Docs and an Add-In called AutoCrat to create self-filling forms that can automatically share PDF copies with a set group of people to make for easy print outs, filing and more.
2018 was the third year that my school hosted our annual College Admissions Case Study event and it was a huge hit for the third year running. Not familiar with a Case Study? Don’t worry – I am going to walk you through what it is and how to run your first one over the next few minutes.
I am all for open source and when possible – I make my resources free. I had the opportunity to present with Franciene Sabens at the 2018 American School Counselor Association conference in July 2018 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. We presented on using marketing tools and techniques in the school counseling profession. While the slide deck doesn’t capture everything we covered – it does have some great links and you can get a feel for the presentation.
I’d like to collect notes from the conference to put onto one big shared file. If you are interested and able to – please share your notes with me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org – Super bonus points if you do so on Google Drive but I’ll take anything and make it work. Send as you make them or at the end.

Why do I need to worry about graphic design?
School counselors have a lot to offer. Our core curriculum, sharing of data with stake holders, promoting opportunities to students and parents and so much more. We offer so much that it keeps is up to our necks in busy. It’s hard to justify spending time learning and creating interesting graphics to support our efforts and that is understandable. Stick with me today and I hope to show you that spending a little time on your public image and outreach is actually something that is essential to your full success and professionalism.
