Manageable, but often stressful
Lead Counselor (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – September 5, 2012
For a school based lead counselor, you arrive to your designated school, check on your clients and if there are any signs of distress you are expected to try to process with them before they enter the classroom. Throughout the day you are expected to work on notes, however, depending on the severity of your clients that may be impossible until dismissal.
I have learned to be patient when working with children who having learning and behavior problems and how to be a better listener.
All of my co-workers are extremely helpful and we work great together.
Initially the company was very stable, however, there have been several changes within the company since I was first employed and now I do not feel secure with my job.
The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to make a difference at least in one childs life and seeing them progress in the program.
