Earlier in the year, Mrs. Solomon, a guidance counselor at Stonington High School, took maternity leave. During Solomon’s absence, the guidance intern, Madison Bavasso, took on some added responsibilities– which helped her take big steps towards her future.

When asked what her experience was like working here, Bavasso responded, “I’ve learned so much that I never thought I would because I’ve been able to work with every counselor and learn their different styles. They’re all great and Mrs. Crowley’s been great as well. It’s been a good experience, but it’s a lot different than I thought it would be.”

Now that Bavasso is done doing the hard work, she plans on leaving some time in May, allowing her to continue achieving her goals in life, which are to apply to jobs around the country. “I’m almost done with my internship hours and I have to graduate from college,” Bavasso said. “I want to be a guidance counselor, so hopefully I’ll end up somewhere.”

Bavasso’s inspiration to be a guidance counselor came from her uncle, who happened to be a guidance counselor. “I talked to him and I liked how he got to work one-on-one with the students and talk to them,” she stated. In college, she took a year off until she was able to decide what she wanted to do with her future and her career path.

“The students here are phenomenal.  It’s been fun to learn more about them because they’re diverse in a way that you wouldn’t think,” Bavasso described. “And I just want to clarify that I’m not a student,” she added jokingly. “I actually went here and graduated in 2011.”
