This week is National Counselors Week, and students from Video Broadcasting interviewed Mrs. Charity Armbruster!
Q: How long have you been a school counselor?
A: I'm going into my fourth year.
Q: Why did you want to be a school counselor?
A: I was told actually by my school counselor that I would not be able to go to college and I should probably stay home and be a housewife, and, in my head I was thinking, I could probably do a better job than he did, so that's why I really wanted to be a school counselor.
Q: Which students do you serve?
A: I serve part of 9th grade, and I serve seniors this year.
Q: What is most challenging part of your job?
A: There's not enough hours in the day to do what we do, and we do a lot.
Q: What is the best part of your job?
A: I get to see students every day.
Q: What is the biggest misconception about the counseling office?
A: That we do very little... which is very not true.
Q: What is the most under-utilized service or support offered by the counseling office?
A: It'll have to be scholarships. I have a ton of scholarships rolling, and I've seen very little seniors come in and apply for scholarships.
Q: How can students make appointments with their counselors?
A: They can email us, talk to us in the hallway, or request through SmartPass.
