Dear Colleagues,

As your chapter leader, I would like to welcome you to the School Counselors Chapter, formerly known as the Guidance Counselors Chapter. This site was designed to keep members informed on events planned for the chapter as well as our accomplishments. By continually updating the resources on our chapter website, I hope to make sure it is useful to you both personally and professionally. You can also find our contract per session rate for counselors on the Know Your Rights page.

I look forward to collaborating with you and continuing our communication. I am available to answer your questions either by phone at 212-598-7773 or by email at rthompson@uft.org.

Rosemarie Thompson
Chapter Leader
