Lisa Wright: Counselor

“They don’t care what you know until they know that you care.” That statement is even more critical when working with teenagers. Our students won’t care that I have a masters degree, or that I taught English for twelve years. They won’t care that I have been a foster parent, have had extensive training working with challenging youth, or that I spent time working with teenage girls at the Dallas County Juvenile Detention Center where I also designed a 6-week-cycle curriculum for their facility.  And they certainly won’t care that I spent four years in the Army before college...
                                              until ...
                                                                  ...they know that I know them by name; that I hear them before I ask them to listen to me; and that they see my face in places other than just my office. They have to first know I believe they are individuals with unique ideas, gifts and challenges, strengths and struggles. I don’t have to be brilliant, charismatic, or cool. I just have to care.
