Maybe you are...
Tired of scrambling last minute to plan what to teach and how to teach it
Frustrated and disappointed your lessons aren't making enough of an impact
Not sure if all the time you're spending on core curriculum is worth it
...Unlocking Tier 1 School Counseling has you covered!
Hey there, counselor!
My first years as a school counselor, my tier 1 didn't make an impact. The students liked the lessons and the teachers were glad I came, but I wasn't making a measurable difference in beliefs, attitudes, or behavior.
Then I started using an intentional core curriculum framework, and delivering research-based lessons. The results from surveys, behavior referrals, and faculty observations? Huge impact!
I am so excited about the opportunity to serve you - to provide you with powerful, relevant PD and practical ideas that help you deliver the best tier 1 programming possible.

Bonus #1: Private Facebook Community
You might feel alone on an island in your building - but I think we should all hang on a (Facebook) island together! Imagine having a group of amazing co-counselors to grow with where we work smarter, not harder, to think critically about the most effective, engaging, and equitable ways to serve our student and schools.
Bonus #2: Templates and Resources
I'm giving you templates, documents, and free resources to make applying your learning in the course smooth and simple. Plus, they'll help you be super prepared for '21-22! Resources include: counseling routines, editable curriculum maps, needs assessments, and more!
"Amazing info! Very helpful! It was PD that I could actually have a “takeaway”-that tangible thing that I can take back to my classroom and implement with students next year! Thank you!"
"This was amazing! It was engaging and ridiculously relevant. We are not trained teachers so having a fellow school counselor who is well-schooled in curriculum planning was fantastic. We need PD like this for school counselors! The takeaway planning charts and tangibles were tremendous and this was hands down the best PD I've been to in a long time."
"This provided extremely useful information that will help me to help create a better school counseling program for the population I serve. Thank you for this opportunity."
