E-Merge is a personal blog about professional lessons. “E” is what my partner and some of my close friends call me, shortening my already short name, Erin, to a single letter. “E” is friendly and casual, and such is the nature of this blog. “Merge” captures the format of the blog, a mash-up of personal reflection, research, other sources, and conversations with people in the school counseling field. Finally, “emerge” suggests the ongoing development of the posts here, which are, on the whole, always in-progress and never complete because neither is my learning. Don’t expect a regular schedule because there won’t be one. I’ve tried that before and failed miserably; however, I will share and crosspost when there is something new. Follow me or SCOPE on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
