Dawn Pinnt
    Hi, my name is Dawn Pinnt and this is my 2nd year as the school counselor for Emerson Elementary.  I have been in education for 18 years, most recently as a science teacher in Crawford, NE.  I received my Master's in School Counseling from Chadron State College in 2012, and I am so excited to be one of the school counselors for Alliance Public Schools!
    I currently live in Chadron, NE with my husband, Clay.  We have two daughters. Marlee is a very active 6th grader who loves all kinds of sports, and Jennalee is a 3rd grader who enjoys art, sewing, and animals!

1.  What is personal space?
2. What can I do if someone is in my personal space?
