Lunch with the Counselor

Having lunch with a student is a small investment that has a lasting impact.  Whether it's a lunch bunch, small group, or an individual lunch with a student, it is well worth the time.

I love getting to know my students individually.  Building relationships is essential in the counseling relationship as well as in the teacher-student relationship.  If students know that we authentically care for their well-being, they are going to perform better academically.  It's a win-win situation.

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." - Leo Buscaglia
