School Counselor

May 1st, 2013

Dear Mr. Johnson —

I have a passion for emotional counseling. As a young child, I struggled in school. I was having issues with separation and issues with being able to fit in with my classmates. Through a great School Counselor, I was able to overcome these issues. She treated me with respect and understanding like no one has before. It was at this moment that I was inspired to pursue this career. I aim to provide this same treatment to your student body.

During my tenure as a previous School Counselor I was able to:

Treat and interact with more than 300 students individually, over the course of the school year.
Put together more than 100 assessment plans and social work plans that students could follow.
Met with parents, teachers, principals and educators regarding social behaviors in our education system.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible.

Sincerely,
Ian Smith
