Access cool tech tools AND support school counselor scholarships!
Carol and I want to encourage you to check out an upcoming webinar held by School Counselor Central and to share that Deb from SCC has pledged to donate an additional $2 for every new individual subscription to SCC between March 10th and May 10th.

I hope that this challenged you and that you gained some knowledge and confidence in yourself. Do not be afraid to strike out, start over, and struggle through something – that is called learning and that is what we ask students to do each and every day.
As I kick off my week of vacation (finally!) for Ski week, I wanted to get a new Vlog out to you. I started using LucidChart towards the end of last year for some scheduling documents at my site.
