School Counselors NM

Meet the Team

The New Mexico School Counselors’ Community of Best Practice was developed in a collaborative effort between the College and Career Readiness Bureau of NMPED and NS4ed to provide additional support to school counselors in the state of New Mexico.

The purpose of this community is to encourage collaboration around information and resources that support best practices in school counseling that are anchored within three key domains of development: academic, career, and social/emotional.

As a central objective of this community, emphasis will be placed on career development with the provision of quality training, tools, and resources that support career advising with students via the effective use of regional labor market data within the New Mexico Career Pathways dashboard (
