About Mrs. Dunn

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did,

but people will never forget how you made them feel.

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 32 years and have three children; Michael, age 29, Nikki, age 25, and Lexie, age 21. 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 the Cleveland Browns anytime, 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! Last year I visited the Outer Banks of North Carolina as well as the Islands of the Bahamas where I swam with a sea turtle! My favorite place is Wrightsville Beach in North Carolina!

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. Bunner’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!
