About Me

My name is Monica Sawyer

In order to get an accurate picture of who I am and the passion I have for education, a bit of background is necessary.  My father was recruited to come to the United States from Europe.  He arrived with two suitcases, a work ethic and the need to make a difference.  He transferred his philosophy of the importance of hard work and the belief that education is the key to self efficacy.

In every position I have held I have sought to push the boundaries and increase my skills in order to better serve students.  With over thirty years in education,  I have witnessed countless times the life-changing benefits of education not only for my own children but for the students I have had the honor to serve.  It has become my mission and passion to help as many students and families as possible.

My Education includes:

My undergraduate degree is in Economics from Clark University.  My graduate degree in education with a specialty in school counseling from  Notre Dame College.  I am also ASCA (American School Counselor Association) certified as a career development specialist.  I received training in college and financial aid counseling while employed by NHHEAF (New Hampshire Higher Education Assistance Foundation).

My Experience includes:

*University Lecturer

*High School Teacher

*High School Counselor

*College and Financial Aid Counselor

*Student Learning and ELO Coordinator

My Awards includes:

*2022 Above and Beyond Award LHS class of 2022

*2019 New Hampshire School Counselor of the Year

*2018 Rotary Service Above Self Award

"Ms. Sawyer's Capacity to build relationships with students is impressive.  She quickly connected with many seniors to support them in the arduous task of not only picking up the pieces of their fractured high school years but also establishing their post-secondary plan and the action planning that had to be done to get them connected with the post-secondary plans they were building.  With seniors, Ms. Sawyer first built trusting relationships with students and then helped them learn how to access college or post-secondary programming of their choice.  This involved learning how to do college applications, speak to college offices, access student loans and write scholarship letters.  These supports were influential in many of our students coming to believe that they could go to college."

Jim M., Principal
