Introducing Dr. Dawson
I feel so fortunate to be a part of the Ben Hill Primary School Team. I am married to my wonderful husband Scott and I have a sixteen-year-old son Caden. This marks my sixteenth year in education! I chose a non-traditional route to start my career in education as I have a BBA in Accounting from Georgia Southwestern State University, a M.Ed. in Middle Grades Math Education from Georgia Southwestern State University, and an Ed.D. in Instructional Leadership from Nova Southeastern University. I added a Leadership Certification through Valdosta State University, a Gifted Endorsement through RESA, Curriculum and Instruction Certification through Berry College, and Teacher Coaching and Teacher Support Coaching Endorsements through Coastal Plains RESA. I have taught middle grades math (4 years), alternative education (7 years), and high school (5 years). I believe it takes a collaborative effort between the school, student, parents, and community to educate our students and I am excited about doing my part to “Grow their minds.” I am looking forward to my best years in education being spent right here in Ben Hill County! Go Canes!
