Silver Linings in the School Counseling Profession

Dr. Trish Hatch and Whitney Triplett

Thursday, March 3rd | 9:00 am – 10:15 am*

Amid the many tragedies and stressors of the past year there have also been hundreds of silver linings within our profession! Every day we hear and see the amazing impact that school counselors are having on the students they serve. Now is the time to leverage the gifts and talents of school counselors and to share the results they are getting to ensure ratios and roles are protected and that students continue to receive the support they need to be successful in K-12 schools.


Trish Hatch, PhD, is Professor Emeritus at San Diego State University (SDSU). As President and CEO of Hatching Results, LLC, Dr. Hatch leads a team of award-winning school counseling professionals who provide professional learning and consultation to school districts across the country. She has authored numerous books including ASCA National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs and The Use of Data in School Counseling: Hatching Results for Students, Programs, and the Profession. A former school counselor, site and central office administrator, she has received multiple national awards, including ASCA’s Administrator of the Year award and its highest honor, the Mary Gehrke Lifetime Achievement award.

Whitney Triplett, the Director of Professional Development for Hatching Results and bestselling co-author, trains school counselors and administrators across the nation. Formerly a school counselor, district lead, adjunct instructor, and state association board member, Whitney was recognized in 2018 as the Illinois School Counseling Advocate of the Year and is passionate about school counseling to promote equity, access, and the success of all students!

Everyone is a School Leader

Scott Seaman and Mike Nelson

Friday, March 4th | 8:00 am – 9:00 am*

Session description to come.


Scott Seaman joined AWSP in July 2013. Scott was a teacher, coach and principal for 19 years. He spent 12 of those years as Principal at Tumwater High School. Scott’s career started as a Spanish teacher and soccer coach at Capital High School in Olympia. He then moved to neighboring Tumwater School District and became the Assistant Principal at Tumwater High School for three years before taking over the principalship. Scott graduated from Olympia High School in 1989.
He then went on to play soccer and start his undergraduate work at Oregon State University. After transferring to Washington State University, he graduated with a degree in Spanish and a minor in English. He later attended Seattle University where he earned his Master’s in School Administration. Scott later returned to WSU to earn his superintendent credentials and graduated with a doctorate from UW’s Leadership For Learning program in June 2018.

Mike Nelson joined the staff at the Washington Association of School Administrators in July 2020 after 35 years as an educator in K-12 public schools. For the past 21 years, Mike was a leader in the Enumclaw School District as Assistant Superintendent and then Superintendent. Enumclaw is where Mike was born and raised which made being as an educational leader in his hometown a call to service rather than a job. In 2019, Mike was named Washington State Superintendent of the Year. His favorite title is one that just came recently with the birth of his first grandchild, “Papi.”

Introduction to the MTSS Approach to School Counseling

Dr. Trish Hatch and Whitney Triplett

Wednesday, March 2nd | Time TBD*

This interactive preconference session will introduce you to the role of school counselors in MTSS, called the Multi-Tiered, Multi-Domain System of Supports (MTMDSS), which is aligned to both the ASCA National Model and OSPI’s Washington MTSS model. Learn how school counselors can apply this strategy to their delivery system to become more data-driven and equitable in their approach to promoting the academic, college/career, social/emotional development of all students. Walk away with a completed, tiered program assessment and recommendations for strengthening your tiered supports for students and families!

By the end of the session you will be able to:

  • Explain how MTMDSS aligns with OSPI’s Washington MTSS model
  • Explain the school counselor’s ASCA-aligned role in MTSS to a colleague
  • Create examples of Tier 1, 2, 3 school counseling supports
  • Assess your school counseling program’s delivery of universal (Tier 1), supplemental (Tier 2), and intensified (Tier 3) supports for students within all three ASCA domains (academic, career, social/emotional) and make recommendations for strengthening it
