My Students

I have the unique opportunity of being a school counselor to some really fabulous students. It is the best job I have ever had. It provides social-emotional learning to students that really need it.

My students are very energetic, which means I have to always be ready with engaging guidance lessons to keep them attentive.

We meet once a week to discuss, play games, role play, and watch videos related to the topics such as anti-bullying, conflict-resolution, friendship, etc.

Our school is an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) school and we are working on becoming college and career ready, as well as STEAM in which we want to enhance our students skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.

My Project

I am requesting funds to attend the Lone Star State School Counseling Conference. This conference will cover the following target areas:

• Planning a Comprehensive School Counseling Program

• Guidance Curriculum / School Counseling Core Curriculum

• Individual Student Planning

• Responsive Services

• Student Support Services

As a 2nd year counselor, I know that it is important for me to keep abreast of all current research in school counseling. In my field of school counseling, I help students in the areas of academic achievement, career and social/emotional development, ensuring today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow.

This conference will allow me to grow professionally in my field to meet the needs of individual as well as group of students. The knowledge that I learn from this conference will allow me to help countless students to enhance their social emotional wellness. Thank you for considering supporting my project.
