Meet Mrs. Dorward

Mrs. Dorward

My name is Alison Dorward, and I am thrilled to be returning to the Palisades School District. I look forward to working with the students, and families of both Tinicum Elementary and Durham Nockamixon Elementary schools. I thought it might be nice to tell you a little bit about myself.

In 2009 I graduated from West Chester University's Counseling and Educational Psychology program where I received a Master's of Education, and earned NCC (National Certified Counselor) credentials. In September 2009, I began my career as a school counselor working in an alternative school with students in grades 6-12. It was a whole new world when I was hired in September 2010, by the Methacton School District in Montgomery County as a long term substitute at Audubon Elementary (K-4). After a year at Audubon, I took another substitute position in Methacton School District working with 5th grade students at Skyview Upper Elementary School. In 2013 I joined the Palisades School District as a substitute, and I am happy to continue my career here in the district.

I have many interests outside of school counseling. Some of these include working out, reading, and watching movies. I also love growing vegetables in the spring and summer months.

I will be at Tinicum on odd days of the 6 day cycle, and at Durham Nockamixon on even days. I will continue to facilitate small groups, lunch bunch groups, classroom lessons, and more. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
