I've shared my experiences in working with my students and the increase of students I'm seeing with mental health needs. I thought this bulletin board would fit perfect in the corridor of our counseling center for students to "Take What You Need". Affirming words and positive quotes help me get through tough days so I'm hoping as students walk passed my office, they'll stop and "take what they need" to get through the day.
I headed over to one of my favorite stores, Michael's, to get what I needed to put my display together.
Day one, I used my Cricut to cut a few shapes with cardstock I already had at home.
I then placed the stickers onto the shapes I cut out.
One day two, I dug around my craft boxes and found some rope, pushpins, and my glue gun to put it all together.

This speech has been on my mind the last few days because the work of school counseling is mentioned. It hits really close to home because the counselor mentioned is a dear colleague of mine. I’ve worked with her since our early start as educators in the late 1990’s.
I’m going to put my thoughts here. Not sure if it will make much sense. I felt the need to put my thoughts into the WWW to balance the comments on this viral story.
What this student says about my colleague, is something any of my students could also say about me. True or not, I could also be put on blast for “not being in my office” or “not returning phone calls”, along with a long list of other reasons why a student or parent may say I’m lacking in my skill as a school counselor. It’s a frightening, and somewhat sad, to know someone’s opinion of me could be broadcast like this - especially if it’s filled with half-truths, exaggerations, and taken out of context.
