Furthermore, I must determine how I will pay for this education.
Of course I want to be happy, and so that is another goal.
My day is usually filled with activities such as group, individual and crisis counseling, conflict resolution, behavioral observation, and assessments.
I also assist in training and coordinating 25 students to become peer counselors.
My main responsibilities are to aid children in learning and carrying out daily living skills, counsel them in their relations with peers and adults, serve as a responsible role model, and to work closely with other members of the treatment team, such as therapists and social workers implementing the Center’s programs.
All of this has proven to be an invaluable learning experience.
I am currently enrolled in my third semester as a full time graduate student in the Master of Science Degree in Counseling.
Upon successful completion of this program, I will earn an M. in School Counseling with the California Pupil Personnel Services credential, allowing me to practice as a school psychologist in California.
Additionally, I should have an idea of how much money I can expect to make in this career and what kinds of opportunities exist for furthering my career.
I also need to take into account where to receive the necessary training and education and how much it costs.
