Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Marnie Dawson and I am delighted to be serving as your itinerant school counselor for the 2019-2020 school year. I will be at Ashburn Elementary on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
I earned my B.A. in Psychology from George Mason University. From there, I went on to earn my Master's degree in Education, Counseling and Development with a focus in School Counseling. Last year, I became a certified Anxiety and Stress Management Specialist through the American School Counselor Association. I have experience as a school counselor on the high school, middle school, and elementary school level.
I live in Aldie with my husband, four children, and two dogs. I am pictured above with my 10 year old daughter, Abby. When I'm not at Ashburn Elementary or my other school for this year, Cardinal Ridge, you might find me at a John Champe High school football game watching the football game with my family as well as the halftime show as my older children both play in the band. Go Knights! You might also find me near a softball field as both my younger daughters play on a travel softball team.
I look forward to assisting our young scholars with their academic, career, and social/emotional development. It's going to be a great year! Go Golden Dolphins!
