Changing times expanding the role of high school counselors
from Chicago Tribune
Though some people may balk at the idea of working with teenagers, Michele Vieu views them as the future. A guidance counselor at Lyons Township High School in La Grange, Ill., Vieu, 33, sees teens doing amazing things every day. She's watched them building underwater and land robots. She's seen them taking care of younger siblings while balancing the demands of school, work and activities. She's seen them raise funds for the Belize Zoo and compete in the Model United Nations, pitting their diplomatic, critical thinking, leadership and teamwork skills against those of other young people from across the state and the nation.
