Beginning of year office photos & info

5 Comments

In June I blogged about my struggle to find my ‘just right’ school. You must be wondering, did she find it? Well, I’m very happy to say that I did. In fact, I found two ‘just right’ schools! I feel so good about joining both of my schools that I haven’t even really been stressed about it, which I have to say is a welcome change.

In honor of finding my ‘just right’ schools, I’d like to share some photos of one of my offices since I put in a lot of work to make it welcoming and kid-friendly. My other office is still coming together.

Worry Eaters

I love my new Worry Eaters from Child Therapy Toys!

I’d also like to share two documents that I created to help educate staff about my role. One of the unique things about my two schools is that they haven’t had a School Counselor in a very long time. Lucky for them, they’ve hired a School Counselor who loves to advocate! 🙂

On the left is an intro letter to staff and on the right is a document that explains what a School Counselor does. You can click on each picture to access the document.

I hope you enjoyed the tour and I wish you a successful school year! 🙂

    • Hi Torrie. This is the first year I have worry stones out for kids to take. My plan is that they can use them in my room, take one if they need to and keep it. If it ends up being misused or I blow through them too quickly, I’ll probably put limits on it. But they are pretty inexpensive, so I’m not too worried. 🙂
