What Role Does The Middle School Counselor Play In The Education Of A Student?

Middle School is an extremely crucial time in the life of a student. Students are exiting their childhood years and are sprinting into what we call early adolescence! During the early adolescent years, students are being driven daily by questions of identity and purpose. They want to know how the information they receive in the classroom fits into their everyday lives. The role of the Middle School counselor is to help prepare these Middle School students to become the leaders of tomorrow, today.
