School Counselor Educators as Educational Leaders Promoting Systemic Change
McMahon, H. George; Mason, E. C. M.; Paisley, Pamela O.
Professional School Counseling, v13 n2 p116-124 Dec 2009
If the full impact of the transformation of the school counseling profession is to be enacted, it is incumbent upon school counselor educators to model the same skills and professional mindset that are expected of practicing school counselors. Specifically, school counselor educators can serve as leaders within their educational communities in order to promote systemic change that will remove barriers to student success. The notion of school counselor educators as educational leaders represents a philosophical and behavioral congruence that churns the professional ecosystem, from the professor to the practitioner to the P-12 student. This article outlines the role that school counselor educators can play in modeling leadership and other essential skills for the profession.
