The most rewarding part of being a counselor is that personal connection I feel that they would have with each individual student. The chance to be able to give advice and counsel to an open mind is something I always have coveted. To know that the role you play in a young person’s life could mold the adult they will be for decades to come is something I would feel is more rewarding than anything else in the role as a counselor.
The most challenging part I feel would be getting the students to open up to you and allow you to connect on a level most people never would. Whether it was a student with emotional or social issues, or home issues. These things I know would press me to continue to face these challenges and try my best to overcome them as a counselor and be there for my students in every way I was able to. Not only to help them with the strength they needed to succeed as students but to be productive citizens of society for the rest of their lives. Big shoes to fill for sure!Mr. H.
