School counselors are being recognized for their constant engagement of helping students examine their abilities, strengths, interests and talents. They are also being cited for working in a partnership with parents as they encounter the challenges of raising children in today’s world.
“The special week honoring school counselors provides recognition to those who implement comprehensive school counseling programs, which are vital parts of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century,” said State Schools Superintendent David Stewart.
Professional school counselors are certified, experienced educators who hold master’s degrees in guidance and counseling. The combination of their training and experience makes them an integral part of the total educational program.
