About Dawn

My BSEd is in Special Ed, with a concentration in Learning Disabilities. I chose to pursue a Master’s degree in Reading Education, because I felt that although I knew how to accommodate and modify instruction for my SpEd students, I needed additional skills to teach them to read well—to not only decode words but to be able to interact with text in a meaningful way. While in my Master’s program, I concentrated in teaching struggling readers. These students deserve the best reading instruction available. They are already behind and often discouraged. I’m passionate about helping move them from that point.

I am certified to teach English grades 7-12, and excelled in both my coursework and my certification exams.
