When I entered the role of a community college counselor, everyday I thought to myself, “What the heck am I doing!?”
I knew I had to figure out pretty quickly how to organize myself and create resources that I can print / email / copy / teach and go on to the next task.
I didn’t want to continually take my work home…
I didn’t want to spend hours catching up on unfinished tasks…
I didn’t want my home life to turn into a complete mess…
I had to get it together. Like, yesterday…
I now arrive at work with more energy.
I’m loving on my students harder than ever.
I can follow up on those time sensitive emails.
And most importantly, I feel much more present as a counselor.
Don’t get me wrong. I have my bad days…I fall off track.
However, everything you see on this website, it has changed my counselor life each day for the better.
I have refreshed!
Resources that work.
Activities that are so easy to implement, you’ll wonder why you ever tried to reinvent the wheel.
Things with a place AND in its place!
- No more piles of sticky notes everywhere.
- No more to-do items slipping through the cracks.
- No more late night lesson planning sessions.
You need a refresh too, and I’ve got your back!
