Bio:

I am so excited to be teaching at MYES! This school and staff are so close to my heart and I truly love this place, and these kiddos.

I am a White County Native, and I love this place with all my heart! I went to MYES the year we opened, and I was in 3rd grade. (Yes, my tile is in the hall on the way to the lunch room, my kids love to see that!) My student teaching also took place here at MYES with Nancy Burford, who was also the student teacher, in my class at MYES. We love to tell people that because, it shows how tight knit our education system is and how influential one person can be to a child.

This will be my second year teaching, and my second year in 4th grade! I LOVE teaching 4th grade, as the kids have a sense of humor and are becoming independent learners. I learned so much in my first year of teaching, and I can't wait to see how the changes I make, create an even better classroom for my students.

My husband is Jordan Dawson, who works at a local funeral home here in Cleveland and you have probably seen him on Tuesday mornings opening car doors here at school. It's his favorite part of the week! We have a sweet dog named Lola, and we love spending time together in the outdoors and you can always find us at WCHS football and basketball games! Go WARRIORS! We also love cheering on the DAWGS on Saturdays!

Education

B.S.A Early Childhood Education, Piedmont College (May 2017)

I just started my Master's Program this summer at Valdosta State University!

  • Parents! It is VERY IMPORTANT that your child MEMORIZES all their multiplication facts. I have provided several options for practicing facts online like Go Bananas, MobyMax Fact Fluency, and XtraMath. All of these links are accessible under the Student Links tab on this site! 4th grade math uses Multiplication and expands on it, so memorizing the facts is imperative.
  • Parents, Please sign up for my REMIND!!! I send out reminders, pictures, and you can also write me with any questions you might have and I will respond. You may either get the app for free, or sign up and receive text messages.
