As School Counselors, it certainly feels like we are expected to have super powers and abilities that no one else has that we can use to solve problems. Superheroes have superpowers that make them the perfect hero for their jobs. For instance, Hulk is super strong, he is the perfect hero for a job that requires heavy lifting. Just like Hulk and the other superheroes, School Counselors have superpowers that make them good at their jobs too.

School Counselors have the power to:
Help you SOLVE PROBLEMS,
help you deal with LIFE CHANGES,
remind you how SPECIAL you are,
LISTEN to your problems and concerns,
help you make and keep FRIENDS, and to
teach you about CAREER options.

Unfortunately, time is the kryptonite that limits us. We can’t help in every situation. That’s where Super Teachers and Super Staff (Super Custodians, Super Bus Drivers, Super Helpers, Super Parents, etc.) are a big help. Sometimes they have superpowers that are perfect for the job.

Here's how I like to use the included resources:
Introduce yourself to the class and have them play with the cootie catcher in groups of 2-4 for 5 to 10 minutes.

Have each student role the question cube and answer the question they land on. Printed questions ask students to describe/explain six of the School Counselor's Main Superpowers (listen, career, solve problems, special, friends, and life changes).

After the School Counselor's roles and responsibilities have been explained, play the "Is This A Job For The School Counselor" game.

Print, laminate, and cut apart Situation Cards to get started. Place situation cards, face down, in a pile. One at a time, students come up, pick a card, read the statement out loud, and answer the question. Discuss answers with the class and kindly help and guide students who are struggling.

This game will help students recognize and establish boundaries and limitations for time spent with the School Counselor. Students will learn what types of situations should be brought to the School Counselor and which situations are better left to other superheroes at school.

After we play the game I like to distribute the worksheet to recap what we have learned. I then like to explain the Student Referral sheets and how students can request to meet with me.

This resource includes EVERYTHING you need to become well known and welcomed into the new school year by your students.

Good luck in your quest to introduce yourself to your students!
