  • Hello, my name is Dorene Sawyer and I am one of three counselors of 800 students at Komachin Middle School. I am responsible for the academic and personal needs of 7th and 8th grade students whose advisor is a member of the Grey Den. I graduated from Saint Martin’s College in 1990 with a degree in Psychology and Sociology and continued there to receive my Masters in Education in Guidance and Counseling in 1993.  I began my counseling career as an Intermediate School Counselor for grades 6-8 on Maui, Hawaii where I enhanced my education and skills immensely. I then moved back to Lacey and continued my counseling career at River Ridge High School for 6 years before “ jumping” at an opening at Komachin in 2005 to return to the age group I love best, middle school!
