Working as a High School teacher in a Charter school, my job wasn’t simply to teach and follow the curriculum. I was also a student advisor for a group of kids. It’s sort of like a guidance counselor role. I help them get along with each other, and with other teachers. I would help them get psyched about going to college, then help them through the application process. We had guidance counselors, but they were really more like social workers and psychologists. I gave advice, and filled the more traditional guidance counselor role.
