Post-secondary schools and employers are looking for students and a workforce that can communicate effectively, work collaboratively, think critically, problem-solve, and use creativity in various settings. I believe there is a 5th C that is also important–and that is Choice. If our scholars have a choice, they have a voice.
As a school counselor, it’s my job to help students who are struggling–academically or personally–as well as guide them through the college application process. Doing that with the added pressure of a pandemic presented a very different kind of challenge that required a very different kind of solution.
