When you have academic questions their door is open. When you need someone just to talk to, you can go in and have seat. You can count on them when transitioning from one grade to the next, or from school to college, career…life.
School counselors proudly serve students by addressing their academic concerns, postsecondary options, and social/emotional skills. For the ones that cheer our students on, we cheer for them the week of February 1-5, 2021.
National School Counseling Week 2021, “School Counselors: All in for All Students,” is sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA). The week provides recognition for counselors while focusing public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do. National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.
In Knox County, we recognize and applaud the work of Rhonda Abner, Tammy Baker, Salleebeth Burchette, Charlie Collins, Deanna Dozier, Jalisa Gay, Jaline Jackson, Rebecca Jones, Stephanie Sanders, Brenda Sears, and Whitney Smith.
