Ms. Aimee Pawlcyn
Hi! I am looking forward to being a part of the Smithville, Horizon family and back in the area to spend time closer to my family. I started out in education as a special education teacher in NKC where we lived and had a family. After I completed my school counseling program I started as an elementary school counselor in Raytown. After just the right amount of time I took a leap and joined Peace Corps, I worked in elementary education in Macedonia supporting their English language programs. Upon my return to the states I landed in the desert mountains of southwest New Mexico where I was a middle school counselor, special education coordinator and had a small counseling practice.
