My name is Dr. Susan Fuller and this is my 15th year as an urban elementary school counselor. I am also certified to teach elementary students and special education students.
Entirely Elementary...School Counseling blog was born!A few years ago at the PSCA conference, I had the opportunity to see many wonderful presenters, but two in particular resonated with me! Danielle Schultz of School Counselor Blog presented a workshop on all kinds of really fun tech stuff and Dr. Russell Sabella of SchoolCounselor.com presented on even more tech stuff and data collection. I left those two presentations feeling rejuvenated and pretty excited about trying some of their tried and true ideas!
So, I started looking for a way to share my tried and true ideas with fellow school counselors. I also began thinking about how to connect with educators outside of my immediate region. Looking for a new challenge, I decided that a blog might be the avenue I was searching for. The blog was created!
The Blog PostsI am always thinking about new ideas to use with my students. Ideas that will grab their attention, have an impact, and help them to be successful in school and in life. During the school day, I may be the primary person implementing these ideas or it may be the wonderful professionals I work with everyday. What you will see on the blog is an extension of how I run my school counseling office - fun, welcoming, colorful -- with high expectations, organization, drive, and genuine care.
It is my hope, that on this blog, you will find school counseling ideas, tips, and enthusiasm to take into your school!
