Comments
38. In your opinion, what are this interns areas of strength?
One of Erins most noticeable strengths is her ability to be genuine with students and to
form positive helping relationships. The students are at ease with her and she is with
them and that is key to the building of trust. Erin is also willing to undertake any task I
set before her, even ones with little notice. This is an important skill to have in a school
setting as one has to be flexible and able to respond to situations quickly.

39. What areas do you believe the intern should focus on to enhance his/her competence
as a professional counselor?
All new school counselors have to learn how to tailor their time to best meet the needs of
their students as well as their school. I myself have learned over the years that a
solution-focused goal oriented approach is going to allow me to make the most out of the
time that I have with my students and help them to be successful in school. Erin, as all
new school counselors, will continue to develop her skills in directing sessions towards
best meeting her students needs.
40. Has the administrative support from the university supervisor been adequate? If no,
please indicate suggestions.
Yes
