Delaware School Counselor,
Hello and welcome to a new school year! I’m honored to represent you as the new President of Delaware School Counseling Association. The DSCA Leadership is already hard at work getting events like the DSCA College Night and Winter Workshop ready. As always, we are looking for volunteers to come out and help us support all the School Counselors in Delaware. I look forward to seeing many you out at our DSCA events this year.
In July, I attended the ASCA National Conference in Denver. The theme of the conference this year was Relate, Recharge, Reflect, Realize. This theme resonated strongly with me; often as School Counselors we are so busy providing support for our students, their families, and staff members that we don’t allow time for ourselves. To provide the best service possible we need to allow ourselves time to recharge our batteries, we need to take time to reflect on how amazing we are at what we do each and every day, we need to realize how vital we are to our schools and that the job of the School Counselor directly relates to student success. As we get ready to begin the 2017-2018 school year my hope that you enter the year recharged and that you will take the time to reflect on your role in your school throughout the year.
Dr. Andrew Capone
