As the first semester in my last year of #gradschool
ended, a busy summer of working started.
I had time to meet with my internship supervisor and can not wait to start in the fall!
Just as I felt I was getting bogged down in endless hours of work, with both bosses out of town, I got the chance for an awesome opportunity!
I was asked to be a TA for an introductory class in my School Counseling program and I could not be more excited!
While I know it will be hectic to juggle an internship, internship class, a part time job, and now adding on this position, I know it will be so rewarding!
Never forget to seize the moment before it passes you by! Every opportunity is a good learning experience!

Target never disappoints.
Goodbye Summer of Yoga 😢 I’ve been going to yoga class 5 days/week this summer as it was something I really wanted to engage in and improve on this summer. However what I thought was a re-aggravation of my recent adductor strain is really most likely a torn labrum. So, no yoga at all for the next 3-4 weeks and back to my usual routine of weights with a sprinkle of cardio. The only treatment is an MRI to confirm the tear and surgery. But, if it’s not affecting my other usual activities than surgery isn’t recommended. Disappointing but I’m glad that I’ve begun investing so heavily in my self care and sought treatment so early instead of making the injury worse #selfcare #yoga #womenwholift #physicaltherapy #schoolcounseling #counselorsfollowcounselors
I found this career oriented book for $3 at Ross! I love how this book portrays non stereotypical gender roles. This is a fun book helping kids dream about jobs for their future. Swipe ⬅️ to see page examples.⭐️✨

I’ve been wanting to ditch my office sandbox because it’s so messy 🐚 🏖
I found an awesome alternative, rubber mulch!!!!! 🙌🏻
⭐️Proud of my profession and my professional association. ASCA released this statement condemning the separation of children from families based on the severe mental health consequences. Possibly irreversible traumatic impact on their development; constitutes ACE’s-it’s definitely our role to act now if we want to abide by our professional (& hopefully moral) code of ethics. And listen-we do absolutely get beaten up for infusing social justice into our curriculum and practice as school counselors-I’m certainly not denying that. It’s very hard to deal with administrative fear and retaliation when we do it. BUT-what’s different and fortunate for us is that IT’S A DOCUMENTED PART OF OUR JOB. It’s actually written into ASCA’s school counseling ethics, so it’s absolutely expected of us to fight for equity for students. Many teachers know it’s their job, too, but they don’t always have position statements and clear cut ethics to fall back on when they get reprimanded for doing what’s right. So let’s make sure we lead here. We have no excuse not to-especially when our peers are out there doing it with even greater risk than we experience. Resources are everywhere for ways to help, but please DM me if you need guidance. And thank you to @cuttingedgeschoolcounseling
for posting the position statement, because I hadn’t seen it. 🙏🏼) #SchoolCounselor
