with experience in academically-diverse whole class settings, i have engaged in multiple facets of counseling within urban and suburban environments over the 10+ years of my career. as a result, i am confident that my extensive background in guidance counseling, educational leadership, and teaching would bring new success to <insert name of district>.
during my career and due to the level of responsibility included in many of my past positions, it is imperative that i consistently remain actively engaged with school teachers, administrators, other counselors, and community leaders. as the holder of masters of education in counseling & guidance and bachelor of science in interdisciplinary studies degrees, in addition to years as an elementary education instructor where i consistently nurtured students and reinforced the most fundamental of learning concepts for students, i offer my educational and experiential expertise and i know i would contribute significantly to your school. even as a guidance counselor, i continue to incorporate a constructivism philosophy of implementing various student-centered methodologies and enhancements within the counseling environment.
i utilize my past and present experiences with a variety of students; emotionally disturbed, gifted, learning disabled, and those with distinct behavior issues. as a counselor, i have experience in the other aspects of guidance including student registration/orientation, test administration and interpretation, special and exceptional student placement, motivational activities, study skills development, individual and group personal-social counseling.
it is my belief that students need to have clear consistent directions and follow-through. when students are sure of your expectations then they know what you want. if students think they can get away with something then they will try. however, a person does need to be flexible and allow students to enjoy the overall school experience. these attributes, and more, are what i wish to bring to your school.
