Dawn is an Early Childhood Developmental Specialist. She has five wonderful children- two girls and three boys! She graduated from Southeastern Oklahoma State University with her Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education in December 2011. She has always had a passion and patience to teach children, so when she moved to Fort Smith, she knew she had to work at a place like Kids Unlimited! If Dawn could have any super power in the world it would be reading minds, so that she could help the children express what they are thinking and feeling. Her favorite part of working at Kids Unlimited is watching the kids learning and master new skills! Dawn is trained in the Strategies for Teaching based on Autism Research (STAR Curriculum Training).
