Colorado School Counselors
From Pueblo to Colorado Springs to Denver to Fort Collins, the best and brightest educators in Colorado are being drawn to the school counseling career.
With Governor Ritter's new education plan, new curriculum and programs will be developed and based on breaking learning barriers for all students with the aid of school counselors learning psychology expertise. No longer will Colorado develop curriculum that is based on tradition and processes that are proven not to work.
"The point is to shift the focus from course titles and the number of years a student spent in math or science class to what he or she actually learned."
The overall perception of how students learn is going to solidify the importance of the Colorado school counseling career and will aid in giving school counselors a larger role in developing educational plans.
