I hope your year is off to a wonderful start. We are deep into our Winter Quarter here at SCU. We recently held the practicum fair for Counseling Psychology students who are ready to begin their practicum next fall, and many of our students in teacher education are beginning to do more independent teaching in the placements. We have two district cohorts in Educational Leadership getting ready to graduate this June. This is always an exciting time as students begin to see themselves as the amazing educators, therapists, and leaders they are becoming.
