I love the lesson plans! They are aligned with the ASCA standards which I love, and my principal was impressed with the quality of the plans. Each topic builds through the grades to give a deeper understanding. My favorite so far is "I Am on the Road to Success-A Lesson on Career Planning". It starts with teaching about career clusters, continues on to teach students about developing a plan, then introduces the older students to resume writing. We are a NEU school and this lesson fits right in with my goals. The kids really responded well to the lesson, too! By the end I had a first grader ask me, "Who is this a picture of?" I replied, "It's a teacher, where does she go?" and without missing a beat she said, "Oh she's in human services!" I excited to get to start my year next year with all these resources, I wish I'd found them sooner.

I have been a member of the School Counselor World website since early last year. It has saved me a tremendous amount of time researching out specific guidance topics to use in classes. The website is user friendly, allowing me to search out quickly what I need, print the materials and lesson plan, which includes the ASCA standards. It is truly a one stop shop. The days are gone where I peruse books and the Internet in search of lessons, then type a lesson plan. It's all done for me now. In addition to lessons, I have also reached out to School Counselor World to put together a staff development presentation to use at my school. In a matter of days, they provided me with a great presentation to use. I highly recommend this website for school counselors looking for ways to make their lives simpler. It has definitely made my life as a school counselor simpler.
