School Counselor Appreciation Week

(Harlem) This week is School Counselor Appreciation week, and New Media Broadcasters spoke with some local school counselors to highlight their experiences within their field.

Harlem High School Counselor James Hodgson says that having counselors in schools is more important than ever before.

“And I think why I think it’s most important is our kids today have a lot of social pressures on them and there’s a lot of pressure on kids and a lot of things going on where I think parents don’t always address that so I feel it’s important for our counselors to be here to form a relationship with the kids and to be there for them if they do have questions or problems or whatever”
