Degrees and Certifications:

Dan Donnellan

I grew up on Long Island, NY and received my Bachelor's Degree from Boston College. I later received my Master's Degree in School Counseling from the University of North Carolina Charlotte. I completed my internship at East Lincoln Middle School, and have been a School Counselor at North Lincoln Middle School since March of 2011. My wife Lisa and I have two daughters, Ava (12) and Emma (11). I am excited to have both of my girls here with me at NLMS this year!

As a professional school counselor, my main responsibility is advocating for students. By collaborating and building relationships with all stakeholders, my goal is to ensure that students meet their academic, social/emotional, and career needs, while ensuring equity and access for all students. 

I believe that every student has the ability to learn, grow, and succeed. I believe that all students have the right to be respected, treated with dignity, and have the opportunity for a high quality education. It is a school counselor's responsibility to support and advocate for all students, regardless of their background.
