My Students

As a school counselor, I work with a large group of students in a variety of capacities. I've sat with and counseled students who are trying to cope with the effects that suicide or illness has caused in their lives. It is heartbreaking to see what struggles some of our children are facing. On the other hand, I've watched students excel and accomplish amazing academic feats while in high school.

My favorite part of my job is exploring options with students about their futures after high school.

Opportunities for high school students are greater than ever and these opportunities are for more than just the top 10%. From internships to tech. school to concurrent enrollment, I feel like I can help any student find something they are interested in pursuing after high school. Sometimes focusing on a bright future can also help students who are struggling in the moment.

My Project

Our counseling center also relies solely on Chrome books in our computer lab. This is helpful to keep costs down, but sometimes it is necessary for students to use a windows operating computer to complete some tasks. It would be very helpful to have this option available to students.

Our counseling office is also currently relying on using home personal laptops or difficult-to-use chrome books to show presentations to students in group settings.

We use presentations for college and career planning, graduation, mental health, and registration at both the high school and middle school.

Lastly, not all of our counselors have home computers. This laptop would allow for remote or distance working if it becomes necessary again or for counselors to work from home if they are required to quarantine.
