The effect a school counselor can have on a student’s success is immeasurable. They introduce, promote, and guide students on their educational journeys with resourceful tools.

Think about your own experience with school counselors in your PK-12 experience. What tasks did they perform? With what aspects of your education were they involved?

Informally interview two high school graduates about their experiences with school counselors in PK-12 education. One of your graduates must have graduated at least a decade ago. What tasks did their school counselors perform? What role did they play in their education?

In a 750-1,000-word essay, synthesize the responses from your experiences and your interviewees to address the following questions. Make sure your responses are informed by information gathered from the interviews:

  • What were the roles and responsibilities of school counselors in your educational experiences or the experiences of those you knew?
  • In what ways has the school counselor role changed and developed over time? Provide specific examples from your experiences or the experiences of those you interviewed that demonstrate this evolution.
  • Compare the experiences from when you were a student in high school to the experiences of those you interviewed. If you do not have personal experiences, refer to the high school graduates’ experiences.
  • How has history, philosophy, and trends influenced current practices of school counseling and the school counselor’s role? Cite one to two scholarly resources to support your response
