How Do I Juggle a Large Number of Students?

Depending on where you work, you could be balancing a lot of students at once as a high school counselor. Here's some expert advice on juggling many students.

Papillion-La Vista High School
I'm a college counselor at a school of 1,500 students—the only college counselor. We divide our duties into domains where college counseling is my only job. I work with students attending four-year colleges, while our career counselor works with those going to two-year colleges. The guidance lessons that I give each year in the classroom are the best way to get information to all students. Other forms of communication—emails, mailings, automated phone calls—also help me ensure that I am educating all students. But nothing replaces one-on-one individual meetings with every student so I can meet their specialized needs.
