National School Counseling Week prepares students for the workforce

School Counseling expert panelists

Feb. 3 marked the beginning of this year’s National School Counseling Week. 

Sponsored by the American School Counselor Association, the week highlights, advocates and promotes the critical work of school counselors.

This year, FIU College of Arts, Sciences & Education students and alumni observed the week (Feb. 3-7) by participating in a variety of activities, which included a professional networking event. Students enrolled in the SDS 6700 course brainstormed on the appropriate and inappropriate roles of a student counselor. They heard from a panel of school counselors and district supervisors from Broward County Public Schools and Miami-Dade Public Schools. 

FIU’s MS in Counselor Education: School Counseling Track prepares students to become an effective school counselor who can work with diverse and multicultural children, their parents and teachers in K-12 school settings.
