Data collection is key to making improvements to your counseling program and advocating for your role. This month on the podcast we’re talking about data tools that I love to use. Today, we’re kicking it off with one of my all-time favorites, the behavior surveys.

Joining us for this episode is a special guest, Jessica Weinberg. Jessica is a member of IMPACT, my membership for school counselors. Today she shares about her journey as a school counselor and how she uses data tools in her own school counseling program.

I love hearing about how she is using the behavior surveys in her program. She will also share how being an IMPACT member has helped her as a school counselor. We would love to have you join us in the program. Learn more about it here.

Jessica has been an Elementary School Counselor for just over 2 years. Prior to that, she was a Special Education Instructional Aide and a Preschool teacher. Originally from Aurora, Colorado, she now lives in Salinas, California. In her free time, she likes to read, cook and exercise.
