National Board Certified Teacher
Hello! My name is Dawn Lawson and this is my first year teaching at Olympic View. I am so excited to be working with students in Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades in our Primary Learning Center. My husband and I moved to Oak Harbor from the Seattle area, and we are thrilled to be living on beautiful Whidbey Island. We love spending time with our family of three grown children and two grandsons, our pet family of several cats and a cockatiel, going to concerts and sporting events, and hanging out at the beach.I have Bachelor's Degrees from Southern Illinois University, the College of Santa Fe, and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of New Mexico. I'm currently taking coursework through Washington State University (Go Cougs)! This is my 22nd year of teaching, and I love it just as much as I did when I started teaching. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher in Early and Middle Childhood Literacy. I know we are going to have a great year, and I look forward to working with you.
