Every so often on twitter and facebook I see people ask about creating a portfolio, whether its a hard copy or a digital one. There was a lot of discussion in May about digital portfolios. You can see my post about how to create a digital portfolio here. With interview season I have seen a lot more questions about creating a hard copy of one that you physically carry into interviews. While in graduate school we had to create portfolio in my intro to school counseling class. I decided to use a large binder with the intentions of filling it as I went through graduate school, which I am glad I d ..read more

The Spirited School Counselor
by thespiritedschoolcounselor
2y ago
I recently asked on the Elementary School Counselor Exchange facebook group about the different certifications school counselors may work towards. I thought the National Board Certified Counselor (NBCC) was the only certification available; however, I discovered that the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) also offers a school counseling certificate. In response to my question Dr. Russ Sabella posted a great side by side comparison that ASCA created. You can see the ASCA Comparison Chart here or below on scribd. NBCC has created a list of benefits of holding t ..read more

End of Year Needs Assessment
The Spirited School Counselor
by thespiritedschoolcounselor
2y ago
This year I was new to what felt like everything… new school, new grade levels (switched from middle to elementary), new area, and a very different population in terms of needs and background. My first instinct was to settle in for a little while and build relationships with some staff members before jumping into data. I know some may disagree with this approach but I felt like I needed to earn at least some of the staffs trust and get some buy in before sending out a needs assessment. This school year I sent out 3 needs assessments – 1 towards the beginning of the year (about 9 weeks into th ..read more

Creating a Digital Portfolio
The Spirited School Counselor
by thespiritedschoolcounselor
2y ago
Recently I’ve received several emails from readers asking about how I created my online portfolio. While in graduate school, I was assigned to make a portfolio for my intro to school counseling course. The idea was that once we had this binder we could add things as we moved through the program and we could use it during our job hunt. This is exactly what I did, but then I decided I wanted to showcase my knowledge and ability to use technology, hence the online portfolio. I spent a lot of time researching and planning prior to creating my online portfolio. I looked at many different sit ..read more
