Just published a new blog post series:

Beg, Borrow and Steal: Form Dump

The BBS series will share resources without required reading (we get straight to the point). It is also something that I will share live storage links that I will continue to update throughout the years with new tools (or forms in this case). Hope you get some use out of the 15 or so forms online now and the many more to come.

I am not quite sure about you, but when I got my Masters for school counseling - I didn't realize how much event (and test) coordination would tag along with the job. I typically dread processing registrations, sign ups and getting info out to attendees for things like parent nights, test prep workshops, and most recently - a community college case study. It just wears on you.

Luckily, I rediscovered and re-purposed a great online program (and yes - there is an app for that) that takes 75% of the headache of event planning away!

Learn more about how that happens for school counselors (hint: Eventbrite!) here:
