Rewards and Challenges
The challenges that I see and understand for school counselors are many. Their role is ever changing and is dependent of the culture of the school and community that they are in. They have to be flexible and willing to adapt to new issues, learn about new issues formally and informally in order to be "in touch" with their clientele. That is another challenge, their clientele. That would include students, families, teachers, administrators and their community. I feel that their roles and responsibilities are far too expansive, at least for the student counselor ratio (1:550) that I see in local high schools. I think it challenging at best for them to conduct any therapy in the daily routine of high school. The rewards, I might image,would be similar to teaching in the sense of making the connection and influencing a student in a way that could change their future for the better. Helping students achieve a goal or make the best choices to get on the pathway to make the goal a reality.
