the clown in me

Being a school counselor can sometimes be very challenging. Wait, did I just say sometimes? What I mean is... it's a 101% challenging job. Yet, it's ultimately fulfilling too!

All day long you hear ranting. But there are some raving too. You hear cries. But you hear laughter too. You help them accept failure. But you also celebrate with their triumphs.

And sometimes, a school counselor acts like a clown, making funny noises and weird facial gestures... just to make your counselee come out of her shell.

Just 5 minutes ago, I was the weirdest looking clown as I tried to make my poker-faced counselee smile. Was I successful? She left my office with her face as red as an apple!
