A few year ago, I was presented with an opportunity to build the counseling department from the roots. All of us counselors were brand new and it allowed us to make this department EXACTLY how we wanted it to be. So consider my TPT products my Pinterest, blog, and Instagram as a form of my diary as a day in the life as a zealous middle school counselor. I love what I do and I wouldn't trade it for any other career, even on the challenging days!

I am a strong believer that organized, intentional curriculum as well as a data drive program will set the counseling department up for success. I thrive on planning and analyzing, some may call me a nerd, and I am okay with that!
