Over 70 Resources to Help School Counselors During the Senior Year

Tuesday, May 1, 2018

Even as the school year comes to a close, school counselors are always making plans for the next school term. As I was searching through Google Docs for some information that I needed, I found an old counseling file that I had made several years ago.  I was pleasantly surprised to find a lot of helpful tools and resources that I could share with my colleagues for seniors.  In this post, I want to share some of these resources that I have saved over the years so that you may use and share with others. As a bonus, I have added some other additional sites and older posts from my blog.  Check out over 70 senior resources, forms, and links that may help you in working with your rising seniors.
