WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE PODCAST

Trish Hatch and her podcast team provide a refreshing voice to the school counseling profession. It’s not often that school counselors have the opportunity to hear from other school counselors about the different comprehensive programs they are working on at their school. I especially love the conversations centered around the elementary school counselors perspective. Trish, Felipe and their team do a great job sharing the very important work school counselors do everyday.
