About Me

My name is Cheryl Lassey and I am a School Adjustment Counselor in an upper elementary school in a suburban Massachusetts town south of Boston. I have also worked in the lower elementary school setting. I love that I get to work with ALL students in my school and feel that is one of the most rewarding parts of the job. Although, it is sometimes challenging being the only counselor in my building of almost 600 students, everyday is different which makes coming to work each day very enjoyable.

My hope is this blog will give other school counselors tips and ideas to utilize in their everyday counseling lives at school.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to email me at Cheryl.CESC@gmail.comI would love to hear from you! 


Thank you for visiting!

    1. Hi Alexis!
      That is so exciting that you want to be a school counselor in the elementary setting. I did internships at both the elementary and high school levels when I was in graduate school - I actually loved both for different reasons.
      Thanks so much for reading and following my blog, I would love to hear how some of these games work out for you in the future!

  5. Hi Cheryl!
    I am so glad I stumbled across your blog - what a wealth of information!! I am currently a school counseling graduate student and can't wait to begin working as an elementary school counselor! I was curious to know if you have any words of wisdom on ways to set myself apart from other job applicants, as I'll be applying for jobs in the near future!

    1. Hi Melanie! I am so glad you came across my blog and found some useful information you can use as you progress in the field, that means a lot to me! When I was straight out of grad school and going on lots of interviews I found that my portfolio really helped to show principals and other school staff the type of counselor that I was. I included brochures that I had made about different counseling programs or opportunities for students. I also included many different lesson plans that I did with students and examples of each. Your portfolio is always a work in progress but I feel that it is a great way to help provide a visual as to how you work with an interact with children and staff. It can help separate you from other candidates too! Good luck!!!
