Ms. Booth

Students with last names starting from the end of the alphabet will miss an important part of their school life next year: their counselor, Ms.Booth, is leaving for a 6 to 9 month trip and won’t be back until fall of 2015.

Ms. Booth will be traveling through South America, visiting family and doing volunteer work along the way. Columbia, Peru, and Argentina are planned stops, but who knows where the winds will take her? In her free time, Ms. Booth enjoys dance and music, so she hopes to involve those activities in her trip as well.

Although she is excited for her voyage, Ms. Booth will definitely miss San Mateo High. Students are top on her list, closely followed by International Week, for which she loves the mix of cultures and people. “I’ll carry the Bearcat spirit while I travel,” Ms. Booth said, “I’ll be wearing San Mateo gear for sure.”

However, Ms. Booth’s students don’t have to fret, other counselors will be taking over for her for next year. It may be Mr. Morales or Ms. Watson, but any one of San Mateo’s awesome counselors will be a great substitute. Any seniors with Ms. Booth as their counselor should make sure to turn in a bio before the end of this school year if they need a college recommendation.

Ms. Booth leaves behind one last piece of advice for students. “Keep the big picture in mind,” she says about the years in high school. “This time will pass, you don’t need to concentrate on the little obstacles. The big picture is the most important.”
