About Mrs. Dunn
About Mrs. Dunn


Hi! My name is Susie Dunn and I am the K-8 school counselor at both Copopa Elementary and Columbia Middle Schools. I have been married to Chuck for 31 years and have three children; Michael, age 28, Nikki, age 24, and Lexie, age 20. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Baldwin-Wallace College, and a Master’s degree in education and school counseling from Cleveland State University. I completed an internship at Copopa and Columbia High School. Before returning to college, I was a substitute teacher in the Columbia Local School District. I love working with children of all ages, and have wanted to be a counselor for many years. It is the fulfillment of a dream to be here and help parents and children with the difficulties and issues that sometimes arise in elementary school.

In my spare time, I love to read, I love the beach and the ocean where I like to collect seashells, and I am a bird watcher. I have seen many different kinds of birds in and around Lorain County, and have seen really unusual species during my trips to Florida, North Carolina, and West Virginia. I love to travel, swim, and walk my 2 dogs, Pete and Otis. I really enjoy watching football, our own Columbia Raiders on Friday nights and on television, as well as watching movies with my family. I like to have fun!

I have traveled to the beaches of Cape Cod, Massachusetts where I saw humpback whales feeding in the Atlantic Ocean and to the Bahamas where I swam with stingrays! This year I visited the Outer Banks of North Carolina as well as the Islands of the Bahamas where I swam with a sea turtle!

I am very excited to be working at both schools this year.  My office is inside the main office at Copopa, right next door to Mr. Ketterer’s office. At CMS, I am in the main office in Ms. Kappus’ old room.  Stop in and see me anytime, or leave a note in my mailbox if I am out of the office. I can’t wait to see all of you!
