How Do You View the World? A Discussion of Diversity and Equity

Robert Jamison

Sunday, June 14, 2020 | 2:00 p.m. – 3:15 p.m. 


SPEAKER BIO:  Robert Jamison is currently the Coordinator of School Counseling Services at the Virginia Beach City Public Schools. He has numerous years of experience as a School Counselor and also as a Guidance Department Chair. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Virginia and his Master of Science in Education in School Counseling from Old Dominion University. Robert has spoken at numerous state and national conferences.

ABOUT THIS SESSION: Join Robert as he presents How Do You View the World? A Discussion of Diversity and Equity. The goal of this introspective session is for participants to think about diversity and equity through a more expansive lens. The presenter will review common terms used in schools, classrooms and organizations and how these terms relate to our behaviors. The session will also review things to consider when working with staff and students, and personal stories related to these topics will be shared. Participants will be asked to participate in individual, small and large group activities throughout the presentation.

Powerful Partnerships: Administrators and School Counselors Working Together to Support Students

Leigh Bagwell

Sunday, June 14, 2020 | 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. 


SPEAKER BIO:  Leigh Bagwell most recently served as the Director of School Counseling Services at the Tennessee Department of Education. She has led transformational work in school counseling throughout the state through the revision of the school counseling model and standards, the creation of a regional peersupport network, and the launch of a dedicated communications channel for counselors, supervisors and administrators. As a school counseling leader, her mission is to provide school counselors with the training and resources needed to deliver high quality, student driven, data informed comprehensive school counseling programs to all students. She believes counselors and school leaders need to work together more deliberately. This collaboration is critical to ensure that all students have access to the opportunities and supports they need to successfully move through their elementary, secondary, and postsecondary education into their chosen career.

In addition to her work in Tennessee, Leigh has shared her experiences and knowledge with school counselors and school counseling leaders in Georgia, Texas, Kentucky and Iowa as well as working with the American School Counselor Association. After teaching school counseling graduate students at Middle Tennessee State University, Leigh was inspired to pursue counselor education. She is currently working on her doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision at the University of Tennessee. Her experience includes working as a school counselor and school counselor supervisor in both suburban and urban school districts.

ABOUT THIS SESSION: Join Leigh as she presents Powerful Partnerships: Administrators and School Counselors Working Together to Support Students. Successful comprehensive school counseling programs are built on effective collaborations between the school administrator and school counselor. While many administrators value their counselors and the work that they do, they have not been given training on the scope and depth of that work. Administrators want to be equipped with information that will help them more effectively support their school counseling program. This session will provide participants the opportunity to build a strong foundation of comprehensive school counseling programs. We will discuss the multiple ways strong school counseling contributes to student success within the three domains of academic achievement, social and emotional development, and college and career readiness. We will also discuss how to use that information as the foundation for a strong collaborative relationship between administrators and school counselors.

Creating Collaborative Structures through Leadership Theory: Designing for Student Success

Dr. Colette Dollarhide

Monday, June 15, 2020 | Luncheon Keynote 


SPEAKER BIO:  Dr. Colette Dollarhide is a professor and program chair for Counselor Education at The Ohio State University (Columbus, Ohio) and has been a counselor educator for over 25 years.  Her teaching and research interests include social justice, leadership, supervision, school counseling, pedagogy, and professional identity, all through a qualitative research lens.  She has co-edited and co-authored several books, published over 40 peer-reviewed journal articles, and made over 100 national, regional, and state presentations. Dr. Dollarhide is serving as President-Elect for the Counselors for Social Justice (CSJ) and will begin her tenure as President in July 2010.  She has also served as President of the Association for Humanistic Counseling (AHC).  In addition, she has served as co-founder and President of Ohio Counselors for Social Justice (OCSJ), President of the Ohio Association of Counselor Education and Supervision (OACES), and Research Committee Chair for CJS. She has served as an editor of the national Journal for Humanistic Counseling, co-editor of several special issues in Professional School Counseling and Counselor Education and Supervision, and has served on the editorial boards of four national journals in counseling (JCD, JHC, CES, and PSC).  She has won two prestigious national awards in research, and two awards in teaching at the regional level and state level. In addition, Colette is a Nationally Certified Counselor, currently holds her LPC with supervisor endorsement in Ohio, and is a nationally Approved Clinical Supervisor.

ABOUT THIS SESSION: Join Dr. Dollarhide as she presents Creating Collaborative Structures through Leadership Theory: Designing for Student Success. Both school principals and school counselors are taught to create student success, but rarely are these professionals thoroughly trained to appreciate each others’ professional roles.  Let’s review those roles based on contemporary professional standards, then talk about how leadership theory and school climate design can help us create collaborative structures that can maximize the unique contribution each professional makes to student success.  We all know “it takes a village” to educate a child, so let’s ensure that every member of our educational “village” is included to maximize each student’s pathway to success.
