Third Grade Track 4
Welcome to 3rd Grade! I am so very excited for the 2020-2021 school year!
My name is Dawn McPherson. I grew up outside of Atlanta, Ga in Peachtree City. I am the youngest of 4 children. I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1993. GO DAWGS! I taught 4 years of 1st grade in Newnan, Georgia. My husband and I moved to Apex in 1997. I have taught in Wake County for 23 years. I've spent 11 years in 1st grade, 3 years as a reading specialist, and 9 years in 3rd grade. That is a total of 27 years of teaching and there is still nothing I would rather do!
My husband Chuck and I got married in 1993. We have two sons. Chase will be a junior Mars Hill University where he will begin nursing school. Cole will be in 12th grade at Apex Friendship High School. Your children will hear many stories about my "boys" and my sweet English Bulldog, Gurley!
