DMES Counselor Lauded for "Setting the Standard"

Meet D7’s Sarah Catherine Watson, who is making a difference and impacting the lives of her students! Each January, Upstate Parent magazine features ten local educators who set the standard for what it means to influence the future. Chosen from nominations, these professionals – classroom teachers, administrators and more – love their students, encourage them, and pave the way for their success. We are proud to see Ms. Watson recognized for her impact as our school counselor and as the JV Girls Basketball Coach at Spartanburg High School. You can read Ms. Watson's story here
During this especially challenging time, all educators have gone above and beyond to provide support for their colleagues and students in remarkable ways. They have done so with grace and perseverance and with little fanfare. To all D7 educators: There is no playbook how to lead during a pandemic; but you meet the moment! Please know you are deeply appreciated.
