OK.OK.OK... so this is my second post that is not exactly about school counseling, it is more a post about life, relationships, and a whole lot of love.
A few months ago, I posted about my friend Annie - who suffered a brain aneurysm, and I wanted to share an update on how great she is doing, and hopefully send a little inspiration your way when you are having a not so wonderful day- or when you are having a life is phenomenal- kind of day.
Tandem biking for two is the article that was written about her- it was in 12 newspapers across New Jersey. She is a breath of fresh air and truly an inspiration as I look at my life and the lives of those around me. There are times in my job [let's be serious, life], when I feel that things are frustrating, unfair, I am quickly reminded that it is a privileged to be alive, have a job, and not only that, but the best job in the world [bias much Amanda?]. I hope you enjoy the article and think about someone in your life that really pushes you to be a better person and think outside the box.
It seems like mother nature threw a few curves, but those curves created a much more scenic route, clearly less traveled, but great in its own way.
Happy Healthy tandem for two,
Your Floridian Chick

|Now if this doesn't look like fun, I don't know||what does!|
My bank account did not agree with either of these options and luckily living and working in a huge district has given me the opportunity to get different endorsements. I had a few to choose from, but after having some conversations with colleagues, and my principal, I decided to go in for the 300 hour reading endorsement. I am starting off with an assessment class,and a foundations class to get my feet wet again. Since I spend a good amount of time with RTI each month, I feel that it will help our teachers and students to give them more resources and to give me a better understanding of their struggles.
I truly miss being a student and am excited to get back into the classroom with my buns in a seat and not in front of the room!
I am wondering- what do you counselors do after you get your masters in counseling? I LOVE learning and would like to continue my education- but where do I go from here?!
