This is an outstanding conversation with Ms. Kirsten Perry, the 2018 ASCA School Counselor of the Year.
Kirsten sits down for a chat about being a School Counselor and all that it encompasses. We talk about everything from her fascinating, powerful story about why she became a School Counselor, to misconceptions about being a School Counselor, what School Counselors really do, to the importance of data, to student achievement, and everything in between.
This is a most excellent exchange about the ends and outs of School Counseling and wonderful tips and insight into defining the role of School Counselor, having a robust School Counseling program and how to balance it all.
This is well worth the listen for School Counselors and all stakeholders alike.
