ALWAYS GRATEFUL!

I use the above phase daily, no matter what circumstances I encounter. I have come to realize that no matter what, there is always something to be grateful for. The month of January proved to give me so much, that the phase is what I have been saying almost hourly. I have the fortunate honor to be not only named the South Carolina High School Counselor of the Year, but the South Carolina Counselor of the Year! I have been blessed and favored with talents, one of which is being a High School Counselor for 20 years, and especially spending most of those years as a Director and leader, developing comprehensive School Counseling programs that are effective in addressing the academic, personal/social and career needs of students. I am grateful that I get to do what I love Everyday! To be honored by your peers is one of the most rewarding experiences there is! I end, as I began,

ALWAYS GRATEFUL!
