The 2019 Professional School Counselors Conference is right around the corner, and we’re excited to share the new curriculum themes we’ve added this year: COURAGE, CURIOSITY and PERSEVERANCE. Each is designed to help you empower the girls you work with, and every theme is based on ASCA Student Standards — so you can have complete confidence in what you’re teaching. #graceandgrit #graceandgritbox #graceandgritcurriculum #curriculum #TSCA2019 #tsca
Ladies, here’s an action item: Seems there’s still plenty of room at the top for more female executives. In corporate America, men held 78% of S&P 500 board seats in 2016, while women held only 21%. Let’s encourage our girls to keep pushing onward and upward to balance the equation. #graceandgrit #graceandgritbox #girlempowerment #womenhelpingwomen

Yesterday Sarah Thomas made history as the first woman to officiate an NFL postseason game. But she's no stranger to the game; Sarah stepped onto the field in 2015 as the first woman in NFL history to become a full-time official. Talk about empowerment! This strong woman is pioneering a path for girls to step off the sidelines and participate equally in the game. We're excited to see who follows in your footsteps, Sarah! photo:John Froschauer/Associated Press #graceandgritbox #graceandgrit #womenmakinghistory #womenempowerment

Sybil Ludington (1761-1839) On the night of Paul Revere’s famed “midnight ride,” this young woman took a much longer ride of her own. After an exhausted messenger arrived at Colonel Ludington’s Connecticut home with a message that the British had just attacked a nearby town, his daughter covered more than 40 miles on horseback through the night to alert her father's soldiers of the approaching British army. Due to her efforts, almost the entire regiment was gathered by daybreak to fight the Redcoats.

As adults attempting to help children forge paths leading to successful lives, we already know different students approach problems — and find solutions for them — in different ways. As a mathematician, Katherine Johnson was instrumental in NASA’s success when given free rein to make calculations her way. Just because something is “tried and true” doesn’t always make it the best or only way to answer a particular problem. #graceandgrit #graceandgritbox #katherinejohnson #nasa #womeninhistory
