I have included what I have felt to be the most significant influences on my career choice.
I expect graduate school to continue to be a journey which I embark upon with great enthusiasm.
I am currently enrolled in my third semester as a full time graduate student in the Master of Science Degree in Counseling.
Upon successful completion of this program, I will earn an M. in School Counseling with the California Pupil Personnel Services credential, allowing me to practice as a school psychologist in California.
I feel very fortunate to be involved in Castle Park’s counseling program.
I am proud of my work there and feel it is excellent preparation for my future role as a school psychologist.So, why not you and I work our way through that initial consultation?Hopefully it will help you refine your private school search process.My goal to pursue a career in the field of education has been a part of my plans since my early teen years.From my first summer job to my current position, the majority of my work and volunteer experience has involved counseling and children.Volunteer work has also been an activity that I like to include in my life.As I previously mentioned, I currently volunteer at the San Diego Center for Children.From this experience I know that spontaneity and high energy are vital for my growth and satisfaction within my career. I soon attained full-time employment with the San Diego Center for Children, where I continue to volunteer on various weekends and holidays.As an undergraduate I dedicated my best efforts toward my education and as a result, I graduated with high honors from the University of California, Santa Barbara earning a B. This facility is a residential treatment program for children with severe emotional disturbances resulting from abuse, neglect, homelessness, or abandonment.My main responsibilities are to aid children in learning and carrying out daily living skills, counsel them in their relations with peers and adults, serve as a responsible role model, and to work closely with other members of the treatment team, such as therapists and social workers implementing the Center’s programs.All of this has proven to be an invaluable learning experience.
