I definitely have a changed impression of school counselors. I didn’t realize the level of education required of school counselors. Previously, I felt like counselors had an easy job but I wasn’t at aware of all the responsibilities that they have. I almost feel bad for them, as a teacher I am all over the place trying to complete all of my tasks. Often times, I feel completely overwhelmed but after my readings I realize my job has NOTHING on a counselor. I don’t know how there is enough time in the day to accomplish the tasks they are responsible for. I know how tough it is to individualize for a classroom but I can’t imagine being responsible for individualizing for an entire grade level or even school wide. I always wondered why I never saw the counselors very often, now I know. They are probably in their offices scheduling the SAT, communicating with parents, teachers, and administration, helping a special needs student reach their goals, counseling a pregnant teen, meeting the requirements of the state, and trying to survive doing all of these things at once.
