Dana Gibson

Ms. Dana Gibson is Kingswood Elementary's guidance counselor. She has had a positive impact on all of our children in some way over the time she has been here. Whether it is through her guidance lessons she teaches for the various classrooms the character lessons she teaches grade levels every morning before school while the teachers are in meetings her small group sessions for students who need assistance with things such as anger management dealing with grief making friends etc her peer mediations she facilitates with students having difficulty with each other or through her one-on-one counseling she conducts with students who are dealing with tough situations. Dana goes out of her way to help anyone who needs it including our families and our teachers. She does this during school time but also often after school or on weekends. She has attended funerals of students' parents to show support to the student and their family. Students who have very unfortunate situations that they have never told anyone about have turned to Ms. Gibson and confided in her. They trust her and feel comfortable. She has personally gone shopping for students or reached out to the community for help for some students who are economically disadvantaged. She puts the children first and does this without hesitation or expecting any recognition for what she does each day! If I had more space I could include many more examples. Ms. Gibson is definitely I.R.I.S.H. and deserving of this award
