What is Counselor Mail and Why is it Important?

It has been almost two weeks since my last post. As much as I enjoy creating printables, there are two more important jobs that I tend to on a daily basis. One is that of a single mother, and the other is that of a school counselor. Now that school is in full swing, I am finding it somewhat difficult to create documents every week.

Today’s post is about something that I am super excited to implement in my school this year. School Counselor Mail! I bet you are wondering what counselor mail is and what’s so great about it. Well, by delivering mail to students I am letting them know that I appreciate them and it also helps me to get to know them better.

I can’t take complete credit for this idea. When researching ways to connect to my students, I came across this idea on the Elementary School Counseling website. Marissa explains how she delivers at least two pieces of mail to each of the 350 students at her school throughout the school year by delivering mail to one student per class per week.

Her dedication inspired me to do the same for my students. However, I have almost 800 students so my goal is to make sure every student has at least one piece of mail from me by the end of the school year. On the site you can download the template Marissa uses to deliver her mail. But I decided to go with something different.
