I am in my 8th year as a school counselor. I have worked in districts in South Carolina & Colorado but then got a job in Japan at an international school (now I work in Shanghai, China).
I like to give a dose of reality when dealing with my students.
I have won no awards and received no formal honors but I'm still awesome.
I went to Community College for two years (Suffolk CC), then on to the College of Charleston...then got two Master's degrees which were financed with debt (yikes).
My life has completely changed since I started working at an international school. I have expanded the scope of my knowledge by leaps and bounds and I've enriched my life in ways that I cannot put into words. Also, I've been to over 15 countries in 3 years and have paid off over $50,000 in student loans in 3 years. I can't believe teachers in the U.S. do not know that this is an option.
