Welcome to Kannapolis Middle School & the 7th Grade School Counselor's Page!
My name is Danah Dusch and this is my eighth year working in the North Carolina Public School System. I have five years of experience teaching in the English/Language Arts, Math, and the Exceptional Children's departments as a Special Education teacher, and I am starting my third year as a School Counselor at KMS. I am passionate about working with students, educators, families, and the community to empower and meet the needs of all students in the areas of academic instruction, personal/social and career development.

The vision of the Kannapolis Middle School counseling program is for all students to maximize their potential for academic success as lifelong learners. Our students will graduate from high school and pursue higher education and skill training to be equipped to meet the ever changing global workforce. Our students will possess the necessary skills to be empathetic and compassionate toward others as well as independent and responsible adults. Students will become contributing member of their community, accepting of culturally diversity, and be critical thinkers as they navigate the complexities of home, career, and community.
Things parents/guardians can do to help:
There are many ways you can support your child’s academic progress at home:
- Ask your child what they learned in school every day and look at their agenda.
- Check teacher websites for more information about assignments and lessons.
- Encourage your child to ask questions in class and come in for extra help when they need it.
- Make sure you receive your child’s progress report once every 4-5 weeks!
- As well as check your child’s Tuesday Folder every week for information from KMS administrations, teachers, and community organizations.
- Contact your child's teachers or school counselor to discuss academic progress.
