Passionate about education and connecting teens to their "Best Fit" colleges. I love working with students and guiding them through the self discovery process. When teenagers know who they are, what they want and what they need to be successful, selecting the right colleges or university that fit them best becomes a journey of joy!
College Counselor, Author of two books, developer of college-prep workshops & professional speaker.
Love volunteering with my kids, kayaking, biking, golf, the beach & enjoying the company of family and friends. Married to a fantastic guy who is my oxygen
I started a fall, winter and end of year coffee at a local high school to get to know parents (no volunteer recruiting allowed) It's now in it's 5 year and continuing to build community and providing an outlet for "Busy Parents" many who opt to spend time with family versus a school event. I myself am finding it more challenging to make events, so I try to schedule things when its convenient for parents - drop and pick up.
Love the walk, I walk before school pick up at 2:00 and have had success in finding parent to join n me. My son's school started a Walk A Thon that we do get an amazing turn out and raise fund for student computers.
Tech Shop events and student showcases are fabulous! Cynthia
Great idea - Would love to brainstorm on questions - I like using this in place of a questionnaire - see Student Success Sessions. What if a school had several Family Feud games to check out - each family takes for a week and uses this as a tool to discover what's working, students interests and the frustrations that often become roadblocks to learning.
