Said No Teacher (or School Counselor) Ever

Today was a quick day.  Students in the morning and staff development in the afternoon.  I thought I would share with everyone some highlights from our superintendent's presentation.

Here is a video that is just too funny for words.

What wasn't added in the video is what is said by no school counselor ever. . .

  • Call me Guidance Counselor.  
  • Counseling is only for people with problems.
  • Go ahead and tell me everything.  I won't listen anyway.
  • I love having a couch in my office.  That's where I take my naps when everyone else is teaching.
  • No, really, I love dropping everything else I'm doing to organize and get ready for state testing.
  • Those who can teach, those who can't go into school counseling.
  • You really don't need a degree to do what I do.
  • I get paid too much money for this.
  • I love that I can play games all day and not have to do any real work.
  • I'm not as important as a teacher.
  • Schedule changes are the highlight of my day!
  • I'm supposed to spend the majority of my day in direct services with students. . .are you kidding?
  • No one needs career planning.  That's what college is for.
  • You CAN'T go to college.  You'll NEVER get in.
  • I'm not in this for the kids.  I go to school because, well, what else would I do.
  • I don't make a difference.
'I love it when you call me 'guidance' counselor,' said no School Counselor ever.

What are the other good ones you have to add?  Let me know.

    1. okay here are mine...
      My budget is simply too big.
      I have all the resources I need.
      Yes, that's right, I "fix" kids.
      I could use a smaller office. (said the counselor with the 7'x12' cloffice space)
      As soon as I leave work I forget all about my students and their struggles.
      I hate my job.
