I mentioned in my first post that organization in the school counseling world is everything! I can't emphasize enough how imperative it is to get organized and set the foundation in the beginning to prepare for the second half. To help set my foundation I like to sketch a tentative timeline of the important things I want to accomplish each month.
Nothing gives me more joy then crossing a "to do" off my timeline at the end of each month :)
Here's a peak of some of my "to do's" for September:
1. Hold a lunch group for students new to school
2. Organize after school groups
3. Class lesson to introduce myself, program, and Bucket Filling Campaign
4. Communicate to parents and staff my goals for the coming school year
5. Set up bulletin boards
I can check off number 5 already. Check out my character word of the week bulletin board below!
