Significant Role of Adult

In by Paige Haberkorn

What makes adult roles significant?

Having the support and a strong relationship with adults to plan for life after high school. Ideally, adults…

  • Are people you feel you can trust and who respect you.
  • Take an individualized approach to getting to know you and how best to work with you.
  • Meet you where you are in life.
  • Help you to continue to learn about yourself.
  • Recognize your dreams, strengths, talents, and needs.
  • Encourage you to make decisions, solve problems, and have your own voice.
  • Provide you with honest feedback.

Significant adult school personnel support results in…

  • Being confident in trusting school personnel.
  • Knowing that adults respect who you are.
  • Learning and growing as you plan for your successful life after school.
