Wow, what a year it has been for us at BV West. Personanel issues have kept us running even faster than normal which has precluded much new develeopment. The weekend before the counselors were to report our newest staff member- a formal college professor of school counseling- had a stroke and has not returned. Then we lost our wonderful secretary- Cheryl- to promotion. That and a tragic student suicide have put a crimp in things.
This next semester will be a challenge as well.
Why do I write this? Well, I had hoped I would be doing a lot with School Poll and Strengths this year. Not so.
I do highly recommend all counselors to check out the December ASCA School Counselor Journal which is entirely focused on Strengths.
