My School Counseling Mission Statement:

   My mission as a school counselor is to promote equity, access, and student success in the academic, college/career, and personal/social domains.  In order to reach these successes, a school counselor must foster student growth through the combined efforts of all stakeholders, including teachers, staff, students, parents/guardians, administration, community stakeholders, and school counselors. Through this combined effort, students can embrace their future with confidence and readiness, and continue their journey as lifelong learners. A school counselor and school counseling programs should encourage students to meet their potential through individualized education planning for all students, regardless of educational and developmental ability. School counselors should provide a comprehensive school counseling program that includes opportunities for students to maximize their talents and skills through educational experiences and beyond.
