On April 13th, Dr. Magnuson was honored as the “Illinois School Administrator of the Year” at the Illinois School Counselor Association Conference (ISCA).
This award is given to an administrator who shows outstanding leadership by supporting professional school counselors and the school counseling program at their school, advocating for a developmental model, and for providing leadership in the further development of an exceptional school counseling program in their building.
Dr. Magnuson was nominated by our school counselor Ms. Jacobson, "For her constant support of the school counseling program at Skinner North, and for always working to put the needs of students first. Dr. Magnuson has worked to limit the amount of administrative tasks on my plate in order to allow me to work directly with students in the capacity of a school counselor. She is an outstanding partner and collaborator, and understands the importance of the role of the school counselor.”
