Part 1: ASCA U Specialist Training
School Counseling Leadership Training
This course is meant to be transformative. It doesn't focus on how leaders behave but how leaders think, not what leaders do but what leaders are. At the completion of this course, you should not only know what makes a good leader, you should be a good leader – in your school building and district as well as in your state school counselor association. Completion of the course also fulfills training requirements for leadership positions in ASCA at the national level.

Quote / Affirmation of the Week: Michelle Obama's Remarks at ASCA's 2018 National School Counselor of the Year Award Ceremony: "You all have the power to teach our kids what it means to go high when others go low. You have that power. Every day you all have the power to shape and mold these kids; to inspire them when they feel discouraged; to remind them that they belong; that no matter how much money they have or where their family comes from, this is their country too. You have that power. You have the power to show them that no matter what their race, or faith, or walk of life, they are valued for who they are...and no matter how alone or afraid they might feel, they are seen, and they are loved."
