We are the very model of advisors educational
Who offer help emotional, social and informational.
We make it so that functions of the School from top to toe shall work,
Because the Field has always been the very heart of social work.
We smooth your way through school, with its attendant and endemic strife,
And find you the supports to help you cope with academic life.
And, if you want to go to graduation when you said you will,
You'll need our help in tracking of your academic schedule.
We find the perfect match (as students, much their amazement, deem)
"tween agencies and interns, by our work on several placement teams.
We urge the agencies to hold fast to their training mission, or
You won't get the experience that you paid your tuition for.
We oversee the placements in their functions supervisory,
If field instructors seem inept, or absent, or derisory--
Although we seldom are inclined to take sides or be factional,
Because most disagreements, we have found, are interactional.
We offer sympathetic ears when illness or disaster strikes.
We try to find out just what every miss and every master likes.
We preach self-care and reassure you that you can afford some fun--
As long as you have gotten all your darn process recordings done!
Our visits to the field are always meant to be empowering:
We ask your supervisor to evaluate your flowering.
And, when you graduate, our last report (it's never phony)'ll
Be useful in your job search as a poignant testimonial.
From the first day of school, when you felf just like a nonentity,
We inculcate in you a strong professional identity.
From soup to nuts, we do it all! We're really quite sensational!
We are the very model of advisors educational.
