Today’s school counselors are vital members of the educational team. They help all students in the areas of academic achievement, personal/social development and career development, ensuring today’s students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow.
The exact responsibilities for school counselors vary depending on the level of education. Whether you’re monitoring elementary students in classroom and play settings, helping middle school students achieve their academic and social goals, or assisting high school students with college-related processes, your days are busy with juggling a lot of tasks.
