NPS Celebrates National School Counseling Week

NPS Celebrates National School Counseling Week
NPS Communications

National School Counseling Week is celebrated the first week of February. This year’s theme is “School Counseling: Standards-Based, Student Focused”. 

In the spirit of this year’s theme, Norwalk Public Schools wants to focus our attention on the unique contribution of the School Counselors in our schools, K through 12. Our scholars are positively impacted as a result of everything our School Counselors do each and every day.

School Counselors are Master's-level trained and licensed educators equipped with the skills, knowledge, and expertise to support and develop students' academic, career, and social/emotional well-being. They are compassionate people who focus on others, often above themselves. They are problem solvers who think outside of the box for scholar-orientated solutions.

School Counselors work very hard for their scholars and families and often take their work home with them in both their hearts and their minds. Here are a few words to describe our amazing School Counseling teams:

  • Compassionate
  • Encouraging
  • Insightful
  • Mentor
  • Resourceful

The quote, “A Good School Counselor Can Change a Class; A Great School Counselor Will Change a Life,” is something we see from our School Counselors.

Norwalk Public Schools thanks you all so much for all that you do for our scholars and their families.

Meet some of our outstanding counselors below:

 John Castelluzzo

John has served the district for 17 years and currently is a school counselor at the Center for Global Studies.

"My most impactful memory serving as a school counselor was when, at an end of year CGS student awards assembly in 2018, a group of seniors presented me on stage with a giant ’thank you’ card signed by all of them with personal notes of gratitude and a glass apple with my name on it to show their appreciation for my time working with them. This was a great reminder of why I entered the school counseling profession in the first place."
