School Counselor, Mickle Middle School
Doane’s program did a fantastic job preparing me for my role as a school counselor. With the intensive week long summer classes, online classes and in-person opportunities I was able to dive into the counseling degree right away without having to take filler classes. Engaging content, knowledgeable instructors and growth-centered classmates allowed me to experience what school counseling would be like and reflect on my journey and how I could impact students in the future.
