It was a productive work environment.
Pros: ienjoyed helping students receive their high school diplomas.
Cons: i was the only counselor on site.
I worked with the entire school staff. I was the only counselor on site which meant, I interacted with the administration, teachers, students, parents, custodial staff, cafeteria workers, school psychologist, school nurse, social worker, drug and alcohol counselor, any one from the business sector or neighborhood. That was the hardest part of my job. – more... I wore many hats and had to learn how to multitask. My student enrollment dropped from 1,063 students to about 365 in three years. My job was to make sure students were on tract to graduate and receive their TN diploma. I also counseled students regarding academic, person/social and career concerns. Making sure students were enrolled in classes they needed to graduate and making sure they graduated on time was the most rewarding part of my job. – less
