February 4th-8th is National School Counseling Week!
Melissa Berg, Licensed School Counselor at Park Spanish Immersion, was asked why she loves being a School Counselor. Read her response below.
Friends and family often ask me to describe my job. I sometimes have a hard time summarizing the role of an elementary counselor (every day is different!); however, nearly everyone comments that I have a huge smile on my face when I talk about my job and about the kids.
Being an elementary school counselor is incredibly fulfilling, both personally and professionally. I feel very privileged to be able to witness students' growth over the course of several years. A student wrote a paper about me that started with the sentence "Srta. Berg es la amiga de todos" (Srta. Berg is the friend of all). Building relationships with students is both the foundation of what I do and the most enjoyable part of being a counselor.
