Dawna: Special Education

Special Education Tutor

Background
I’m in my seventh year of teaching. I teach special education at Venture Academy with a focus on 8th grade humanities and math. I graduated from Bethel University with degrees in international relations, third world studies, and political science. My Master’s degree in science in education is from the University of Pennsylvania with an emphasis in urban education.

Free Time
I love spending time with my puppy Midnight, walking around the lakes in South Minneapolis, spending time friends, seeing family in Northern Wisconsin, reading, drinking black coffee, and traveling.

Goals
I love getting to know students on an individual level and watching teens grow into adults who care about the world around them. This is a passion that I instill in students and fuels me to do the best I can, with what I have, wherever I am.
