In 2015 we wished Melody Meyers well as she returned to teaching after ten years with Hatching Results® and we saw some new additions to our expanding organization.  Lisa De Gregorio joined us after over ten years with Chicago Public schools.  She brings her unique experience as district leader and her attention to detail to us as our new Director of Operations conducting all business operations in Melody’s place as well as some project and team management. 

Trisha McHugh, who has a background in nonprofit financial counseling providing daily reporting, research, and analysis to various management teams, now conducts our administrative work focused on online surveys, technology, web development, and social marketing.

Another new team member is Franciene Sabens, Senior Online Learning Instructor, first worked with us as a reviewer for The Use of Data in School Counseling: Hatching Results for Students, Programs, and the Profession (2014) text prior to publication and has been instrumental in launching our first online learning course focused on chapters 3 and 4 of the text—Data, Data, Data!

Our Hatching Results staff and expert consulting team is ready to serve you!


The fullness of our calendar was unprecedented in 2015—Hatching Results® conducted training in over 30 different school districts/state organizations!  Without the expertise and professionalism of our team of consultants, this would not have been possible.  We wish to extend our sincerest appreciation to our team of top-notch trainers, including Julie Hartline, Danielle Duarte, Vanessa Crawford, Nicole Pablo, Kalli BeckwithFelipe Zanartu, Diana Camilo, and Ashley Kruger. Find out more about just how amazing they are on our website HERE

Besides this, for the first time, Hatching Results® partnered with Universal Technical Institute (UTI) and various State School Counselor Associations to conduct a series of one day The Use of Data in School Counseling trainings at various UTI campuses across the country!  This was a new way of providing professional learning to individual educators and school counselors rather than with entire districts or organizations. 

Not only that, as someone who has been working with state and national-level policymakers for over a decade, 2015 was an especially exciting year for Dr. Trish Hatch to be a school counseling advocate at a national level.  Through her participation at the various White House Convenings regarding the White House’s College Opportunity Agenda and First Lady’s Reach Higher initiative, Dr. Hatch was invited to attend the 2015 School Counselor of the Year ceremony held for the very first time at the White House and, as a founding member of the NCSCPS consortium, to meet at the Department of Education with outgoing Secretary Arne Duncan and incoming Secretary John King to discuss school counseling policy, practice, pre-service and in-service training, and research.

And who can forget about the new Federal legislation in 2015 that includes and defines school counselors—the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)?!?!  ESSA is a HUGE step forward for the students we serve because it helps to legitimize the profession by describing the work of school counselors and providing opportunities for districts to expand their school counseling programs.  It explicitly lists school counselors as allowable recipients of federal professional development dollars, includes school counselors as “Specialized Instructional Support Personnel” working in schools, and requires schools receiving Title I funds to have a plan for comprehensive school counseling programs!  We at Hatching Results are so grateful to all the passionate school counselor advocates who "believe" and see the “miracles” happening in school counseling!

  • Expanded Online Learning Options—Currently Hatching Results® offers the Data, Data, Data! online course focused primarily on chapters 3 and 4 of The Use of Data in School Counseling: Hatching Results for Students, Programs, and the Profession (2014).  Look for additional online learning focused on other chapters of the text to be available this year!  Learn more or register for online learning by visiting our website HERE.
