Having recently returned from the 2017 ASCA National Conference in Denver, CO – I had a lot of learning, reflection, and networking on my mind. I got to meet and reconnect with both uber experienced veteran school counselors and school counselors just starting their journey into the profession. I still feel like a baby-faced newbie, but finishing year five – I feel like I have learned a LOT in that time. I decided I wanted to write a letter to myself that I wish I could have read on day 1 of the job. Check it out below and I hope you think about writing a letter to your future or past self.
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!
Come and take a look at the ins and outs of running The Counseling Geek. Mostly financial outs this year, but take a look at where things are going and coming in.
The Counseling Geek turns 3 years old today – thank you for being a great reader and part of my Professional Learning Network. Check out what has been special and what’s to come inside.
Hello faithful and fellow Geek. As promised last year when I started loosely “monetizing” this blog with affiliate ads from Amazon, I want to provide a brief yearly review of the ins and outs of The Counseling Geek. This analysis will be from July 1, 2014 to May 6th, 2015 (not because that is a year but this is when I have time to write it up).
