Ms. Erin Dickson
Welcome to my page, I'm Ms. Dickson!
I work at Alton Central School as a half-time Guidance Counselor with students in grades 2, 4, 7 and 8. For the past 12 years I've worked with middle school students, I'm excited to add some more age variety to my days!
I base my work with students on the belief that individuals have the power to create their own future, and through the power of positive thought and action, anything is possible. I teach students that what they believe to be their limits is only based on their perceptions and with a shift in thinking, they can overcome their perceived limits to meet their goals.
I live in Alton with my significant other and 4 children, ages 8-18. In my spare time, I enjoy bow hunting, running, laughing and rock climbing. Some people might describe me as being annoyingly positive, but I'm cool with that.
