What if you had a simple, easy-to-use data tool that would help you make improvements to your program and give you a visual display you can show to your administrators and teachers so they can actually see the impact your program is having because of the work you do? This month, we are talking about data tools, and I have a special guest with me today to talk about one of my favorites.

In this episode, I interview Katherine Guerrero. Katherine will share her experiences as a school counselor. She also shares how she uses the End of the Year report to analyze her program’s progress as well as how she shares those results with her teachers and administrators. As a member of my school counseling membership IMPACT, Katherine shares how being a part of the community has helped her as a school counselor.

Katherine is a 3rd-year elementary school counselor in Southern California. She loves to see her students light up when they have that “ah-ha” moment and she can tell that they understand the concepts they’re working on.

It’s not too late to sign up for my FREE training, How to Use School Counseling Data to Improve Your Program and Advocate for Your Role. In this 4-part video series, I’m going to show you how you can transform your counseling program by using data collection tools. Plus, you’ll get a freebie that is really helpful for this time of year. The videos are short and each one gives you a quick takeaway that you can start implementing with your students right away. Be sure to join us before the next video drops!
