Clip to ScrapBook #12

I know I already replied, but to add on to what others are saying, finding out more about the actual job would be a good start too. I'd see if there are people you could shadow or at least talk to. At my elementary school, our school counselor tries to do things like lunch bunches and friendship groups, but in reality 95% of her day is spent dealing with kids who are melting down/tantrumming and/or irate parents. She works very hard, but classroom teachers are often resentful because she's put in a position of having to tell them ideas for the child in the classroom/developing behavior plans, and they feel that dealing with the behaviors should be "her job." Which it is, but there are 550 kids and one counselor. There is only so much she can do.
