Mrs. Dawn Mesnard

Hello! My name is Dawn Lee Mesnard. You cannot imagine how excited I am to have

found a wonderful place like McAuliffe to be a part of this year!

Before becoming a school counselor, I taught Psychology and Counseling classes at

the university level for 9 years after earning a degree and working in the area of

Marriage & Family Counseling from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. After

moving to Texas, I transitioned to working in public education. I taught 4th grade for 4

years and earned my Masters Degree in School Counseling from Dallas Baptist

University. I spent the next 8 years as a school counselor in Wylie, Texas. I love that I

get to bring my experience and passion for education to Lewisville. Students, families,

teachers, the learning, the challenge of school - it’s always been such an important part

of my life!

I’m excited to get to know each and every student, family and teacher at McAuliffe as

soon as I possibly can. My first year will be spent learning how I can best serve you. I

know that we will have some very different, even unknown, challenges in the next

school year that we haven’t had before, so I’m happy to be there to help figure out the

next steps with you!
