Hello, my name is Dawn Stewart, and I am the school counselor for 4th and 5th grade at Koscuisko Upper Elementary. I am excited for the 2020-2021 school year and my first year at the school. The is my 25th year in education. I’ve taught 5th through 12th grade students, have been an instructional interventionist, and have worked as a junior high and high school counselor.
