As a School Counselor I believe all students deserve access to School Counseling services. The nature and essence of School Counseling Programs should be comprehensive, developmental, and continuous. In that, the on-going enhancement of school counseling skills and knowledge to benefit children is essential. All people have value and deserve respect and dignity. Counseling services provided to students and schools should be data driven with appropriate accountability components. All students should be taught skills that lead to developing competencies in the three areas of academic, career, and social.
