10 Must Have Office and Wardrobe Additions for Back To School
With summer break looming or already here for many school counselors around the US – the fall still leaves a lot of questions in terms of what school will look like with the COVID-19 outbreak and mitigation measures. I was poking around Etsy the other day and found some great items that I think make a super BTS roundup. Check out the items below that make up the 10 Must Have Back To School Essentials for School Counselors to get your office and wardrobe ready for a return to our office or to our virtual space this fall.
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 email@example.com – 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.

That’s right. You do have 10 minutes a day. Likely more if you really looked hard, but we will go with 10 minutes. What would you say if I told you that 10 minutes was all it could take to make a huge difference (or even just a little) in a few kids lives each day you are in your office? You’d probably jump right on that bandwagon.
