Counselor



A Syms   

I am very excited to join Dawson County Middle School this year. I come to you from North Augusta, SC, where I have worked in the field of education for over 25 years. I have worked in both public and private schools teaching K-8 students in a variety of subjects. I have also worked for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the CSRA as an Education Program Director. I received my Bachelor’s in Education from Slippery Rock University in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania and my Master’s in School Counseling from Augusta University in Augusta, Georgia. I am married to Frank Syms and the mother of two adult children Savanna (26) and Austin (28). Since I am a strong believer that emotional and physical health go hand in hand, I am dedicated to staying active. Whether it’s a daily run, a leisurely hike or a 5k race, I enjoy exercising in the great outdoors. In my free time, I love traveling and exploring new places, especially to find delicious food. I also enjoy sewing, reading, music (especially country), crocheting and experimenting with essential oils. I am so excited to kick off the new school year as a Dawson County Tiger!
