Thank You, Counselors!

Thank You, Counselors! National School Counseling Week is February 4-8. During this week, we celebrate school counselors for being actively engaged in helping students examine their abilities, strengths, interests and talents; for working in a partnership with parents as they encounter the challenges of raising children in today's world; for focusing on positive ways to enhance students’ social/personal, educational and career development; and working with teachers and other educators to provide an educational system where students can realize their potential and set healthy, realistic and optimistic aspirations for themselves. “Our counselors work extremely hard to meet the needs of the students in Irving ISD,” says Jennifer Todd, director of guidance, counseling and college readiness for Irving ISD. “They are an integral part of both their school and the surrounding community, and I am honored to work with such an amazing group of professionals.”  For all that you do, we say thank you, counselors!
