Speaking at the School Counselors & Administrators Institute in Murfreesboro, TN

I will be speaking at the School Counselors & Administrators Institute, February 8-10, at the Murfreesboro Convention Center in Murfreesboro, TN. This year’s theme is “One Team, Many Hands, Great Accomplishments.”

My presentation, “Templates Make Life Easier,” will be Tuesday, from 2-3:10pm. During this session I will be demonstrating templates that minimize and automate work that would normally take an astronomical amount of time to complete. I know this because that’s how long it took me to develop the templates.

First, I will be discussing an Excel template, complete with automated graphs and formulas that schools can use to track students who need to be targeted for discipline concerns. If you want a good MEASURE, this is the place to start. Secondly, I will be discussing a color coded schedule that enables counselors to see and to show what their program is doing. This can be especially helpful if you are seeking RAMP certification from the American School Counselor Association. And finally, I will be showing the templates I use to streamline TCAP. They simplify test administration thereby decreasing work and frustration for the testing coordinator. Save yourself some time and trouble as all these templates will be made available to you. They took me hours to develop but will only take you minutes to learn.

    Sounds great! I’m going to the Conference, and plan to sign up for your sessions. Will you be making your excel templates available? Could I have a copy? Sincerely,

    Dale –

    I’m teaching an Excel workshop for counselors in Utah in a few weeks. Do you still have these templates and are your willing to share?
