A typical day at work began with a 30 minute staff mtg. 3 times a week from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. to discuss internal & external issues, strategies and procedures that affect children's learning styles, development, changes in testing procedures, etc. Scheduled Meetings with parents (some emergency, not scheduled) on a daily basis. Individual and group counselling sessions with students. Monitored and evaluated graduate students from Georgetown and GW University during their Internship Program In Professional School Counselling. Trained other students to become Peer Mediators. Served on our Administrative team and had to make very difficult decisions when it came to consequences for disciplinary actions. Had to coordinate and provide numerous presentations to both students, faculty and parents. Responsible for placing students in the top 7 ranking schools in Washington, D.C. with a 97% placement rate. The most enjoyable part of my job was shaking student's hands as they walk across stage to receive their HS diplomas and to hear all of their accomplishments & awards that they received for their hard work over a 4 year period of time. Also witnessing the growth, maturity and commitment in the lives of these students.
