I recently finished my M.Ed in School Counseling and have experience tutoring elementary students and providing college preparation services to high school seniors. Before graduate school, I served with AmeriCorps (the United States' version of the Peace Corps) working with middle and high school students with college preparation.
I volunteer with the Posse Foundation as a writing coach: working individualy with high school seniors in creating college level writing. As a graduate student, I worked with high school seniors in crafting and editing their college applicaiton essays.
Working with other people and helping them reach the next chapter of their life story gets me up in the morning. This is also my motivation for becoming a School Counselor.
