A Day in the Life: Dawn Provencher Alamogordo Daily News

...
"If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't be in school," a student said, as she rolled around in her school counselor's ergonomic, no-back "chair."
As Academy Del Sol High School's counselor, Dawn Provencher is responsible for several things, but she said she wanted to "help make this a place where kids like to go to school, so learning is a positive thing."
She starts her day with the first of two presentations for teachers about the new rules for testing held this week. Within a few minutes after stepping into her office, she spoke with a student's employer about some potential problems in the student's work environment. She told a student they did exactly what they should have done by reporting their concerns and she would handle the situation.
"I wanted them to think I was a nut from the school, not a nut off the streets," she said about first notifying the student's employer. "I want my girls to feel safe at work."
And within a few minutes, she was already planning to meet and mediate a conflict between two students. Once the two students were in her office, her Texas accent added to her presence. Her glasses hunged almost at the tip of her nose while she spoke about respect. She said she tries to make the school a positive place and make sure students understand that she and administrators know what is going on with students.
Throughout the day, she kept her door open for students and teachers.
...
The second student said Provencher "goes above and beyond, and she'll pick you up if you can't get a ride to school."
"I love that lady," the third sitting in her "chair," said smiling.
The second student said Dawn was the aunt she never had.
"Well, thank you, for not saying grandmother," Dawn said, once she was back from her meeting.
Dawn said the hardest part about her job is when she gets the students who arrive late to the school some are seniors. She said her main goal is to help students be successful in school, meaning graduation.
"Greatest school ever, very misunderstood school and misunderstood students," she said. "They are not bad kids, they are wonderful kids."
She was a counselor for six years in Cloudcroft and worked with Alamogordo Public Schools for many years prior to that. She has a bachelor's degree in social work and two master's degrees in education guidance and counseling and social work. In addition to being a member of the Optimist Club and a third-party voter registrar, she teaches Introduction to Social Work twice a week at NMSU-A and teaches a sociology class at Holloman Air Force Base once a week. She was a child-welfare investigator for more than 13 years in Texas and Georgia, worked for public health, mental healt and private practice. She then began in education and stayed there. Dawn helped enroll the 40 students in the dual-credit program with New Mexico State University-Alamogordo at Academy Del Sol.
