On Wednesday, February 8th TCIS hosted its second annual career day. The counselling team worked with the Career Day Planning Committee for the past year to host this special event for grades 6-12.
Career Day is an integral component to the Counselling Department 6-12 College and Career Curriculum for students.
The day started with grade 6-12 students hearing from 2 Keynote Speakers; Ms. Cyndi Mitchell, CEO/Founder Ayuda Heuristics, and Mr. Isaac Kim, Managing Editor and Policy Analyst Institute of Korean Studies and Ministry of Unification.
After keynote speaker presentations, the grade 6-8 students broke up into their homerooms and completed Naviance Career lessons and the 9-12 students sat in on 3 workshop presentations of their choice.
We are thankful for all the presenters and PTA who helped make this one of a kind special event possible. The counselling department has already started planning for next year’s Career Day!
The TCIS Counselor Department hosted a very special 2 Day Counselor Institute on January 19-20, 2017. This professional development training and program development was led by the co-founder of ISCA, Ms. Cheryl Brown.
During the two day institute, the K-12 Counseling Department worked to align our current programs with the ISCA International Model. The aim of the International Model for School Counseling Programs is to provide a framework for encouraging and promoting best practices among international school counselors.
The counselling team is now working on rolling out their program goals as they continue to grow the TCIS K-12 counselling program within the 4 domains, including, academic, career, personal/social, and global perspectives.
