|Me and my AMAZING practicum student|
School wide weekly events and contests:
Monday- Teacher Treats
Here’s the scoop:
It’s National School Counseling week. Stop by the work room for a treat.
I found this cute treat on Pinterest that I'll recreate for my teachers.
I love ...
I love being a school counselor because my students rock. Why do you love having a school counselor? Complete the sign and take a picture with your class/grade level team. Every class that sends me a picture or shares with me will get a special treat.
Don’t forget to watch the Character Education mystery reader video. Teachers have your students guess and vote on who they think the mystery reader is for February. E-mail your guess (1 per class) and I will put the correct answers in a drawing for a prize.
What is bullying? We often confuse bullying and conflict- ask your class to write the definition of bullying and e-mail your guess (1 per class). I will put correct answers in a drawing for a prize.
*We've been learning a lot about bullying in recent months. I am looking for three parts to the winning definition: 1)it's negative, unwanted, aggressive behavior 2)it's repeated 3)there is an imbalance of power
Counselors encourage students #reachhigher! Wear your favorite college gear and take a #reachhigher selfie. Learn more about this amazing initiative at https://www.whitehouse.gov/reach-higher
*This idea comes from the ASCA Photo week challenge. I will also be doing the photo week challenge.

I created daily announcements based on the ASCA suggested announcements check my announcements out here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_6T4rR2pFj5UnZKV1hrWDJURWc/view?usp=sharing
To kick off the week I created a newsletter for my teachers and staff. Check out the entire newsletter here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_6T4rR2pFj5N3BEbjB1b3F5Snc/view?usp=sharing
It gives an overview of events, explains why we have school counselors and explains that the week is designed to share about the program and is not an "appreciation week," includes an about me section, and fun things in our cooking theme.
