What is a school counselor?
A school counselor is someone who works in elementary, middle, and/or high schools to assist with academic and personal/social development, as well as career preparation. Duties vary depending on the needs of the school, but most high school counselors present classroom guidance lessons to all students, initiate individual student planning, provide individual and group counseling, and promote academic achievement to ensure future success. All professional school counselors are required to have Master's Degrees and required state certification. Maintaining state certification includes participating in on-going professional development to stay current with educational reform and challenges facing today's students.
