Okay, so finally I get to tell you about my internship!
Its all set in place. (Whew!)
I had my interview on Thursday at my 3rd and final internship placement: my old high school!
It went fabulous! There was great chemistry, lots of connections and they officially accepted me to become their intern.
I am thrilled for so many reasons.
First, it is a wonderful school with a really good counseling program. There are currently 3 other counselors there for me to learn from.
Second, for me, this is a huge turning point in becoming a counselor. Two years ago, I remember thinking, "I could NEVER work at my old high school.... I'd never be respected... I'd never know what I was doing.... I would be so intimidated." But one day, things changed; I realized I can do this and that it would probably even be fun to be back at my old school! I have no idea who of my old teachers are still there, but there are several girls that I know that work there now.
Third, its in a GREAT school system, a different system from my last two placements, and still only 35 minutes from my house. No different than what I've been driving for the past 4 years.
Finally, there could possibly be an open position there.... possibly! I don't know for sure, and I don't think the counselors there even know for sure, but just the possibility is exciting enough for me.
I start on May 11 for my last internship of my graduate program!
I'm still very much praying and asking God to keep preparing me for where he wants me to be after August.
In the meantime, I have 2 power points and 2 papers left for this semester along with my current internship, but once those papers and power points are out of the way, I should have ZERO assignments left before graduation. Seriously.... zero!
