Welcome to The Creative Counselor. I started this blog to share creative ways to counsel children. I am an Elementary School Counselor in Lexington, South Carolina. I have been a school counselor since 1993 and received my National Board Certification in 2004. Recently I just renewed my National Board Certification in 2013! I love developing fun, creative ways for children to learn and share about the many topics that School Counselors teach. I am known for saying "Let's not recreate the wheel", so you will see many activities that counselors have done over the years, but updated. I love technology and think it is a great way to catch the attention of our students! I hope you enjoy these ideas. I love helping others and don't mind sharing any of my ideas. Feel free to email me or check out my School Counseling website.
