You’re Invited!

Please consider joining us for the National School Counseling Week’s Breakfast Event! This is the third annual Breakfast event that the Wisconsin School Counselor Association has hosted, and this provides us an opportunity mid-year to connect as professionals and colleagues (especially since our annual conference has moved to November). We look forward to continuing this new tradition!

This year, we are focusing on the high value that a cohesive relationship between School Counselors and Administration brings to our schools. As an association, we highly anticipate our Keynote speaker XXXX’ address- they will certainly be inspiring, and will invigorate our passion for our work as educators! I personally hope that we can experience this speaker together, and continue the conversation afterwards and provide the best support we can for our students. 

Check out the details on the Wisconsin School Counselor Association’s website at /nscw-breakfast-2023/.

We also understand that times are busy right now- if you can’t make it to the live event with me, you are able to watch the keynote afterwards if you register in advance. Then, we can meet and talk about it together!

Please let me know what thoughts or questions you have, and I look forward to engaging in this opportunity with you,
