At Butler Academy, or BA for short, we’re committed to building something extraordinary, and we won’t settle for anything less than the most talented, innovative, passionate, and committed educators we can find. Our goal is to find a School Counselor who is committed to closing the achievement gap by making BA a dynamic learning environment where every child is genuinely embraced and uplifted. Please be sure to include a cover letter describing why you're a good fit for our school.
The successful School Counselor understands the impact adverse childhood experiences have on a scholar’s academic achievement and social/emotional development. The School Counselor strives to identify, support and promote the success of Butler Academy scholars who have experienced trauma. The School Counselor works closely with our leadership team to ensure the successful implementation of a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program across all grades. The School Counselor, collaborating with school staff, families, and community partners, will work to maintain our school as a safe, supportive, trauma-sensitive learning environment for all students.
