today), I wanted to write about my highlights from following the #asca16 conference as a nonparticipant (aka #notatasca16) sitting on the couch.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you may have heard about a little conference that occurred in New Orleans last week. Although I couldn’t attend (it was my anniversary trip to the Poconos), I was able to follow the Twitter posts to find out all the latest news and resources. The purpose of this post is to share with other non-attenders what I learned.
Highlights from #asca16

I found a new counseling rock star to follow. Last year, I wrote a post about following counseling rock stars who have made great contributions to elementary, middle, and high school from their awesome blogs (see the post below).
Well, I am super excited to add another star to this list, Rebecca Atkins. Rebecca is the author of the blog, Counselor Up, and I have included a link to her blog. Although she focuses on elementary school counselors, she offers a lot of great resources that can be useful to any school counselor. For instance, check out her post on making your email box a happy place!
Okay, school counselors really posted some awesome quotes! Following Twitter, I found a lot of t-shirt worthy quotes from the conference. I decided to make some posters for my office!!
Of course, the resources are always a big hit!! Here are some outstanding resources, articles, and presentations that were shared by school counselors on Twitter.
