My name is Dusty Donalson and I joined the Rock Springs family in mid-February last school year as a part-time counselor. I am currently a full-time counselor this year and will be working with all students with the last names beginning with L-Z. I am very excited to continue my journey as a school counselor in this incredible school and supportive community!
I received my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio in Education and taught 4th grade Math, Science, and Computers, and then 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English in San Antonio. I then moved to Katy, Texas and taught 10th grade Academic and Pre-AP English for two and a half years before relocating to Tennessee with my husband’s job in January of this year. While teaching, I also completed my Master’s degree in School Counseling through the University of the Southwest. I completed my counseling internship at the high school I was employed with, as well as the nearby junior high where I was able to lead girl’s groups with a focus on self-esteem and self-care issues.
I am very passionate about making a positive difference in my student’s lives, and strive every day to go above and beyond to help ensure their success now and in the future. I am incredibly compassionate and empathetic, and strive to inspire students to see the potential they possess, even if they don’t see it themselves. I look forward to serving you all this year!
