I've been working with teenagers for about 20 years now--half as an English teacher and half as a guidance counselor. I have walked hundreds and hundreds of kids and parents through college admissions, and I have come to believe (as most guidance counselors I know!) that helping students choose the best schools for them as unique individuals is the best way to ensure that they are happy and successful in college.
Every year I work to streamline this process and tailor it to meet each student's needs. Every year my goal is to make it less confusing and overwhelming for the kids, and certainly to decrease their stress in every way possible.
More and more people are asking for this help, this guidance, and this stress management system. I realized two years ago that I couldn't possibly help everyone who needed it (I wouldn't even be able to handle all of my own family and friends!)...unless I built a website. This site is that vision.
May it set each of you firmly and clearly on the path to your own dreams.
