HOW DO I WORK WITH SIXTH GRADERS?
  • Many high school students and even graduates come
    back again and again to be a counselor at
    Foothill Horizon. Here are what our most
    experienced counselors think are important parts
    of the job.

    rather than just their friend.
  • - Keeping them focused on positive activities so
    they stay out of trouble.
  • -Catching the students being good.
  • - Showing ENTHUSIASM and a positive attitude at
    all times

    students. Try a COUNT OFF
  • 2. Counselors ALWAYS stay at the FRONT of the
    line.
