School Counseling Week 2016

It's that time of year. The time to celebrate the men and women who devote their time and hearts to being counselors. For counselors, it is a time to advocate for your program and show off all of the amazing stuff that you do!

If you are reading this and have not been a counselor...then I hope you stick around. As educators, we all devote lots of hours, are heartbroken over our students' stories, and pour so much love into all we do so that our students can be empowered and succeed. Yet, as a counselor, it is a very deep emotional weight. You connect with students and usually get to continue as that "ear to listen" over many years. You laugh, you cry, you celebrate, and you are there through rough times. Being a counselor is definitely no easy job!!!

So how are you celebrating School Counseling Week? Need some ideas? Below you can find past posts:

As a counselor, I used this time to do announcements about what counselors do, give the staff certificates of appreciation for their support, and even highlight data to show the effect the counseling program had on the campus.

I also enjoy giving my own kids' counselor a treat and some of my fellow counselor friends. Below are some ideas.

-Handwritten notes from students
-Journals and Sharpie pens
-Lunch
-Gift Cards
-Homemade treats
-Starbucks (you can never go wrong with that...lol)
-Framed, positive quotes
You can get your own (print above)  FREEBIE HERE!
I hope you all have a great week full of lots of fun! Next up, I will be doing a wear to work series and a review on the new Honest Makeup Brand. Hope to see you back!
