Q1: What are some of the key factors in a productive principal/counselor relationship? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:05 | ARHSCounselor

High School counsellor in Calgary Alberta #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:08 | SSpellmanCann

You are absolutely correct. It is all about the relationship. RT @kelly_counselor: A1: Like a marriage- trust and respect! Ha! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:08 | ARHSswampfox

Q1: definitely communication! Love humor and fun too. Can't be all serious all the time #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:09 | ecmmason

@RL_SchCounselor Completely agree! Humor a MUST! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:09 | ARHSCounselor

Do you find that administration has time either at the beginning or ending of the day to communicate with its counselors? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:09 | annmarie0609

A1: a counselor with a strong understanding of their role #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:09 | jmvdoc

A1: I'd say when a principal understands and respects the role of a school counselor. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:09 | hmsadilek

“@Megan_M_Kelly: Gotta say I love the intern representation tonight! #scchat” Boo Ya! Awesome!!! 14-Nov-12 01:09 | ecmmason

“@SSpellmanCann: High School counsellor in Calgary Alberta #scchat” Yay Susan is here! 14-Nov-12 01:10 | ecmmason

@ARHSCounselor Sometimes you just have to laugh. And remember to not get "stuck" in one way of thinking. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:10 | RL_SchCounselor

@jmvdoc there needs to a clear mutual understanding of the principal's expectation/perception of school counselor's role #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:10 | MrJGoldman


Is there a time in the day when everyone de-stresses...including the principal? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:11 | annmarie0609

@MrJGoldman agreed but a strong counselor can shape the uninformed admin toward thier purpose #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:11 | jmvdoc

Currently tackling question on "the relationship b/t counselor and principal, #scchat if you'd like to tag along! @PaulPetersonSPH 14-Nov-12 01:11 | andyvl16

A1: Relationships relationships relationships, trust, advocacy #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:11 | dpk933

Man, you guys are awesome! Great answers!! Don't we all wish we had ALL of these? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:12 | ARHSCounselor

I'm finding that my new admin. this year and I are touching base everyday and it has made a HUGE difference! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:12 | kelly_counselor

That and her understanding my role much better than my former admin. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:12 | kelly_counselor

@kelly_counselor I feel disconnected too, if I don't check in to at least say "hello" everyday. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:12 | RL_SchCounselor

@kristiykendrick when a principal asks "what are your goals for this year?" The response needs to be shaped around couns standards #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:12 | jmvdoc

@kelly_counselor This is a huge accomplishment. Congrats!! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:13 | ARHSCounselor

INDEED! when a principal asks "what are your goals for this year?" The response needs to be shaped around couns standards #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:13 | kelly_counselor

A1; My director is often a fourth admin. this requires daily communication #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:13 | dpk933

The relationship needs to be developed and is rapidly changing given educational changes #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:13 | SSpellmanCann

@kristiykendrick weekly meetings, Friday 9:30am, counselors & admin set the agenda together #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:13 | BCrudale

This is encouraging great discussion within our internship class. We all have varied experiences #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:13 | jschmitz2


@bcrudale love that idea! @jmvdoc great reminder :) #Scchat 14-Nov-12 01:14 | kristiykendrick

Remember if the goals are not clear...when a "non counseling" task comes up, then you might get asked to do it. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:15 | jmvdoc

Frequency is critical. RT @ecmmason: @RL_SchCounselor @kelly_counselor agreed, frequency seems to trump length in prin-counselor #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:15 | ARHSswampfox

@MrJGoldman just set the time! We didn't have time before we made it a priority #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:15 | BCrudale

We also have a weekly meeting this year too! I am spoiled, but take into account my new admin. is now female, my age, etc. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:15 | kelly_counselor

@kristiykendrick @bcrudale thank you! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:15 | jmvdoc

When you have weekly meetings is it to monitor progress and update plans or just reporting statistics? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:15 | annmarie0609

@jschmitz2 Curious to know how often your interns meet with admins? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:15 | Megan_M_Kelly

#scchat Good evening all! Sorry I'm a bit late. Frequent, open, transparent communication encourages trust!! 14-Nov-12 01:16 | leshhs1

Once a week@leshh1 #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:16 | jschmitz2

I have our counselor in our admin meeting at the beginning, then once updated on initiatives we continue without her #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:17 | jmvdoc

@Megan_M_Kelly @jschmitz2 Also curious too! As an intern, I don't get much face time with the principal #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:17 | thelittlegum

Every day. They need to get used to the level of communication that is necessary.RT @Megan_M_Kelly: @jschmitz2 Curious to know how o #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:17 | ARHSswampfox

I agree as a 1st year counselor! RT @ARHSswampfox: Every day. They need to get used to the level of communication that is necessary. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:18 | RL_SchCounselor

Great conference this past weekend in Providence...disappointed in turnout but terrific key note speaker... #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:19 | annmarie0609


I have a partnership with my principal. A valued relationship for both of us. I don't want his job and he doesn't want mine. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:20 | jschmitz2

A2: in my perception age and experience difference was a big barrier with my former administrator. Not always the case tho. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:20 | kelly_counselor

@thelittlegum @jschmitz2 My admin love that I ask4their opinions on my needs assessments- they enjoy helpng me learn drng internship #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:20 | Megan_M_Kelly

Did you know that the college planning center, where I am interning, sees many juniors who are trying to understand process #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:20 | annmarie0609

#scchat barrier to admin/counselor collab is definitely disconnect in time: I'm with kids, they're doing obsvn & discipline, hard to connect 14-Nov-12 01:21 | MrJGoldman

@kristiykendrick This works great! We have to stick to an agenda or we'll go on forever solving the worlds problems. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:21 | ARHSCounselor

@kelly_counselor great question...making a difference in schools around systems like counseling #scchat

and support

14-Nov-12 01:21 | jmvdoc

TIME! RT @ARHSCounselor: Q2: I'm hearing trust, respect, communication, understanding of roles... What are some possible barriers? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:21 | RL_SchCounselor

Is this something administration/counselors consider a goal...post h.s. planning #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:21 | annmarie0609

Q2: admin should take coun course, & vice versa, in grad school so roles are understood #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:22 | BCrudale

@ARHSCounselor barrier is often lack of communication. #schoolcounselors must be willing to make first move. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:22 | ecmmason

COOL! RT @jmvdoc: @kelly_counselor great question...making a difference in schools around systems like counseling and support #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:22 | kelly_counselor

@MrJGoldman agreed! Get centered with your purpose to make it a challenge to place you in non counseling tasks #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:22 | jmvdoc

A2: Time and priorities are the only two I can think of that represent significant issues. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:22 | SchifferB

@megan m Kelly we agree, many of the prin enjoy the interns being there...and helping them learn #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:23 | jschmitz2


Used to put monthly/weekly time tracking sheets in principal's mailbox if didn't see him/her #scchat. Communication comes in many forms. 14-Nov-12 01:24 | ecmmason

@dpk933 great point-- I can go on and on when I'm passionate. Who has time for all of that?? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:24 | kristiykendrick

we have a counsellor advocate in our district who in-services admin. on our roles and how we can work together breaks down barriers #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:24 | SSpellmanCann

#scchat in my prev school, a bigger problem was lack of prof respect. Now, my AP @whatley_kevin was in my position 10yrs ago #problemsolved 14-Nov-12 01:24 | MrJGoldman

A2: don't surprise your principal, If you are dealing with a critical student issue make sure to inform them #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:25 | jmvdoc

A2: TIME! Even in our weekly admin team mtgs, it is difficult for everyone to make time for "counseling" items! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:25 | KBSCounselor

I am noticing that time continues to be the largest barrier to overcome. What are some suggestions to overcome this barrier? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:25 | ARHSswampfox

@ecmmason Weekly reminders of how we use our time! Great idea, but making the report takes time, too. #ascaRAMP #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:25 | MrJGoldman

@dpk933 YES! Short, sweet, to the point. Data helps. NO rambling. Be prepared. 2-3 min at most. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:26 | ecmmason

A2: go to prin. w/ possible solutions, not just problems #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:26 | BCrudale

@ecmmason Excellent point! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:26 | ARHSCounselor

Mid year....data should be collected...presented in a meeting between counselors and administration to plan out rest of the year. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:26 | annmarie0609

Walk though the hall and talk with your administrator- one minute is better than zero with #exercise #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:26 | kelly_counselor

@ecmmason @dpk933 And bring handouts w/ data for later reference. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:26 | Megan_M_Kelly

RT @ecmmason: @dpk933 YES! Short, sweet, to the point. Data helps. NO rambling. Be prepared. 2-3 min at most. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:27 | ARHSCounselor


RT @kelly_counselor: Walk though the hall and talk with your administrator- one minute is better than zero with #exercise #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:28 | ARHSCounselor

This was a great experience! Thank you for welcoming me. Have to go and teach #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:28 | jmvdoc

@RL_SchCounselor @MrJGoldman Simple is fine. Find frequency that works 4 u. "Special" weeks might be worth sharing out of reg sched #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:28 | ecmmason

We love solutions. Our counselors bring a different set of strategies to the table.RT @BCrudale: A2: go to prin. w/ possible solutio #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:28 | ARHSswampfox

@kelly_counselor I have to run when "walking" with @ARHSswampfox. :) She's in high gear ALL DAY! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:29 | ARHSCounselor

@jmvdoc Your input has been awesome!!! Thank YOU! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:29 | ARHSCounselor

@dpk933 our wkly mtgs are not about specific kids, about big picture issues & how to solve them #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:29 | BCrudale

Mine RUNS in HEELS! @kelly_counselor I have to run when "walking" with @ARHSswampfox. :) She's in high gear ALL DAY! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:29 | kelly_counselor

Sounds counterintuitive, but taking frequently with small bits of info saves time. No need for big long mtgs that never happen. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:29 | SchifferB

“@kelly_counselor: Walk though the hall and talk with your administrator- one minute is better than zero with #exercise #scchat” LOVE! 14-Nov-12 01:30 | ecmmason

@ecmmason Every 15 min I jot down what I'm doing in my planner for own reference/ if I'm asked for. Works for me, just curious! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:30 | RL_SchCounselor

@SchifferB Thanks for joining #scchat! #TeamBCPS 14-Nov-12 01:30 | MrJGoldman

“@kelly_counselor we do the walk and talk a lot! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:30 | PSCErin

“@stscounselor: RT @BCrudale: A2: go to prin. w/ possible solutions, not just problems YES! This is a great point! #scchat” YES!!! 14-Nov-12 01:30 | ecmmason

@cindralaluna awe thank you! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:30 | jmvdoc


@annmarie0609 #scchat My principal rarely expects me to know the data immediately. Follow-up email suffices. 14-Nov-12 01:32 | MrJGoldman

I'm going to write a book about Walk and Talk! ;) RT @PSCErin: “@kelly_counselor we do the walk and talk a lot! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:32 | kelly_counselor

Yes they do. They are an essential key to the success of a school!RT @leshhs1: #scchat SCHOOL COUNSELORS ROCK!!!! :) #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:32 | ARHSswampfox

Q4: We've got the relationship perfected. :) Let's talk collaboration. Do you plan programs/initiatives, etc together? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:32 | ARHSCounselor

@ecmmason Good point :) #scchat Why not share what we do all day? 14-Nov-12 01:32 | RL_SchCounselor

Side bar conversation. Hey @leshhs1 What happened to 'Bama? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:32 | dpk933

“@RL_SchCounselor: @ecmmason Good point :) #scchat Why not share what we do all day?” YES! Be proactive. 14-Nov-12 01:33 | ecmmason

If everyone is "walking and talking", is there any personalization being done in the school during the day? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:34 | annmarie0609

@MrJGoldman @ARHSswampfox just "GULPED." Hahaha! We eat, breath, sleep data. I better know it. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:34 | ARHSCounselor

A4: I hope next year to look much more at data to find achievement gaps to plan programs, etc. She's gotta learn the job this year! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:34 | kelly_counselor

@dpk933 #scchat Dan!!! Wow!!! A&M outplayed and out coached us! Johnny Football had quite a game! Too fast! But ROLL TIDE!!! 14-Nov-12 01:34 | leshhs1

@ARHSCounselor A4: Recently included admin on a google doc for their input on a school-wide assessment. #sctech #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:34 | Megan_M_Kelly

Collaboration? A4: Pretty excited about a bullying action plan we're going to develop together. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:34 | RL_SchCounselor

Does anyone stop and just take a breather and talk to the students.... at lunch time..before or after school? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:34 | annmarie0609

Advice for getting your first job after graduating? Graduated in May & no luck as of yet! #frustrated #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:35 | LaurenAshley07


A4: yes! We often plan together, pilot a program, & get feedback from principal/other counselors before going big #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:36 | BCrudale

As principals we must steer the ship, but I must rely upon many to assist in finding the correct coordinates to navigate. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:37 | ARHSswampfox

Of course! Relationship is everything.RT @annmarie0609: Does anyone stop and just take a breather and talk to the students #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:37 | kelly_counselor

@kelly_counselor Baseline Data is the name of the game this year. Wow her with what YOU collect. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:37 | ARHSCounselor

#scchat Include counselors in school wide planning whenever possible!!! 14-Nov-12 01:37 | leshhs1

Agreed! I hate finding about things after the fact. RT @leshhs1: #scchat Include counselors in school wide planning whenever possible!!! 14-Nov-12 01:38 | RL_SchCounselor

A4: We collab on big projects/initiatives before going live with whole school/all staff. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:38 | thelittlegum

10-4! RT@ARHSCounselor: Baseline Data is the name of the game this year. Wow her with what YOU collect. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:38 | kelly_counselor

The best reflection on a principal or guidance counselor is when you are some where other than school and kids walk up and say Hi... #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:38 | annmarie0609

@mkelley723 Excellent Answer! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:38 | ARHSCounselor

@annmarie0609: Does anyone stop and just take a breather and talk to the students. That is always a priority! #scchat� 14-Nov-12 01:38 | PSCErin

Now that is trust and relationship...because they are pro-active. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:38 | annmarie0609

In RI counselors are not part of new eval system. Need to be creative to include them in discussion. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:39 | dpk933

A4: admin has counsellors share at every staff meeting and we plan around themes #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:39 | SSpellmanCann

@SSpellmanCann I really value that my admin team cultivates leadership from all willing staff members #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:40 | MrJGoldman


@cindralaluna @rl_schcounselor NEVER too late to start! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:41 | ecmmason

Building leadership capacity within a building is so important to the culture of any shool.RT @MrJGoldman: @SSpellmanCann I really v #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:41 | ARHSswampfox

Like the sound of that ...student centered and that data has names, face, and stories. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:42 | annmarie0609

Awesome. RT @SchifferB: ‌ counselors keep us data-informed ... They ensure all those numbers have names, faces, & stories. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:42 | RL_SchCounselor

@ARHSCounselor planning and presenting together great idea!!!! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:42 | SSpellmanCann

Thank goodness!! RT @ecmmason: @cindralaluna @rl_schcounselor NEVER too late to start! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:42 | kristiykendrick

I have asked to do this and we will get there, especially with implementing PBIS next year. #changes #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:43 | kelly_counselor

Advocacy, Leadership, Accountability. Sound familiar? Are we all working toward the same goal...increasing student achievement? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:44 | ARHSCounselor

You forgot one...what about socialization...students need to find compassion for one another. Life is hard for some. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:45 | annmarie0609

Presented to students, staff in times of crises. Unfortunate but VERY necessary to be on same page. Present united front. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:45 | ecmmason

Sorry for being late! Glad to get here. Josh, Middle school counselor from NJ #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:45 | WMS_Counselor

@ARHSCounselor absolutely! The task is helping my principal understand that-- more than just the cheerleader! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:45 | kristiykendrick

@ARHSswampfox: Building leadership capacity within a building is so important to the culture of any shool. RT. I totally agree! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:45 | msollitto

@annmarie0609 Are you familiar with ASCA National Model? #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:46 | ARHSCounselor


I want to be more of a role in increasing student ach. and I know the ASCA National Model is the way to move to the next level! #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:48 | kelly_counselor

If not on your school's leadership team (whatever it is called), ASK to be. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:49 | ecmmason

RT @ecmmason: If not on your schools leadership team (whatever it is called), ASK to be. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:49 | mkelley723

Hard for a student to think about math and english when they don't know where their next meal will be coming from. #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:49 | annmarie0609

@annmarie0609 @kelly_counselor #scchat It may help to embrace #firstgen movement when merging the divergent macro/micro Nat'l Model goals. 14-Nov-12 01:50 | MrJGoldman

@HCMSCounselor @hcscounselor Presenting about Principal/Counselor Relationship this week at ASCA. #scchat has been great tonight!! 14-Nov-12 01:50 | leshhs1

Absolutely! Every leadership team must have a school counselor!RT @ecmmason: If not on your schools leadership team (whatever it is #scchat 14-Nov-12 01:50 | ARHSswampfox
