Rewards and Challenges
I think the most rewarding for guidance counselors would be to see their hard work come to full manifestation. This can come in terms of acceptance letters to colleges, successful completion of classes scheduled, students overcoming obstacles, graduation ceremony, seeing students after they graduate and they are doing something productive, and even a thank you. I think the most challenging will be to know a student will have to learn by experience. To know the talks, the shielding from harm, keeping them from falling will not be enough at that moment for success.
