"School Counselors: All In for All Students," Feb. 1-5, 2021
by Rebecca Ginnetti, School Counselor
This year’s theme for National School Counseling Week is “All In for All Students”.
I am all in for all of our students, because I want children to believe in themselves and have the tools they need to be successful in life. My motivation is seeing how children grow and learn from extra care and support as they hone their problem solving and emotion regulation skills to navigate challenges, incorporate “the power of yet”, and develop appreciation for themselves and others. I look forward to continuing to promote growth mindset thinking and problem solving, curiosity and appreciation for diversity, effective coping strategies, and healthy relationships. As my profession is recognized this week, I am profoundly grateful, especially during these challenging times, for our students, the dedicated faculty, staff, and a community of parents who partner with us daily.
