Here's What to Expect In This Episode:
This week’s episode is all about getting money for professional development… specifically what I’ve learned and how I’d recommend going about getting that money for professional development opportunities.
I’ve had all different responses to my personal asks for professional funding for a variety of ways to grow myself and my practice as a high school counselor. Those responses didn’t stop me from asking time and time again.
Listen for my strategies to get the money you want for the PD opportunities you need!
