My name is Dawn Mitchell. Before becoming a teacher, I worked for several community education programs holding jobs in various capacities. I have had experiences in teaching first, second, third, and fourth grades. Tarwater has been my home since 1999 and I must admit I’ve enjoyed all of the staff, students, and families that I’ve encountered here.

My Education and Professional Background

My Educational Philosophy

Every year, I look forward to getting to know an amazing community of learners. Since student learning styles and abilities can vary greatly in the classroom, my role as an educator is to teach to the needs of each learner. I believe that all students want to feel capable and successful. My ultimate goal is that each student leave my classroom with those two valuable gifts. With proper motivation and connecting curriculum to inspire life-long learning, I feel I can help guide students to achieve their full potential and a path to success.
