JP Resident Receives Counselor Educator of the Year Award from Massachusetts School Counselors Association

Salem State University professor and Jamaica Plain resident Laurie Dickstein-Fischer, PhD, was awarded the Counselor Educator of the Year award by the Massachusetts School Counselors Association (MASCA) on April 4th during the MASCA annual conference held in Boxborough. Dickstein-Fischer is an assistant professor and program director for the school-counseling program at Salem State University. Her research focuses on the intersection of social interaction and technology within the framework of, and informed by, social justice. The award was given to Dickstein-Fischer for her outstanding contributions in teaching, research, and service and for making significant contributions to the school counseling field. “Having my work and research recognized by MASCA is a great honor, however, I am most proud of the work that my graduate students do every day and the opportunity I have to guide them further in their practice of school counseling,” said Dickstein-Fischer.
