The School Counselor Stephanie Story
It has been a marvelous journey of over 20 years in the education field to get where I am today- a published author and seasoned school counselor!
To get an idea of who I am, you can check out this video where I briefly explain how to use the American School Counselor Association and Texas School Counseling Association Models to enhance and advocate for your school counseling program. Take a look and get some tips for how to work with your principal to lessen your non-counseling duties so that you can implement best-practice counseling strategies at your school! To watch the video, just click on the image of it below.
In my journey to get where I am professionally today, I taught in many capacities: all subjects in the Maryland public schools, English and English Teaching Methods at a Mozambican teacher’s college, and English as a Second Language at an international school in Bolivia!
In 2008, I relocated back to the USA with Spanish fluency under my belt and started my career as a Texas-certified school counselor in a high-need public school system. I have been an elementary and middle school counselor for the last 10 years. When I’m not counseling, writing, or presenting, I enjoy ranch life with my husband and our menagerie of pets—all of whom practice healthy coping skills, of course!
