Summer Highlights



I have missed my school counseling community and have been trying to keep up! I have to say there are some awesome SCs out there with great ideas on twitter, facebook and Pinterest. 

However, I am at the end of my PhD and have days before I turn in my completed draft. I am also transitioning out of my position as SCA president and into the October conference chair position.

Lastly, even though you have the summers off, this is my BUSIEST time of year because we hold all of our in-house professional development AND I have a doctorate student intern working with me in central office. BUSY! BUSY! BUSY!

However, I have lots to talk about...

Starting with ASCA. It was AWESOME. I got to meet a lot of twitter peeps! All of the keynote speakers were great and I loved hanging with the delegates from the different states. I cannot wait until Arizona. Be sure to check out the VSCA Facebook page for our pictures.

BTW - had the opportunity to sit in on a couple of interviews for school based positions a few weeks ago. So I have some tips on what not to do...however, I need to make these edits to my dissertation first...so stay tuned! I am working on continuing to be extraordinary! 

Stay tuned!
