QISD counselors bring 98 years’ experience

National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), is celebrated from Feb. 59 to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do.

National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.

The special week honoring school counselors provides recognition for school counselors who “implement comprehensive school counseling programs, a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century,” said Quinlan ISD Supt. Dr. Debra Crosby.

Quinlan ISD counselors have 39 years of experience in the district and a total of 98 years of experience in education.
