Mrs. Dawn Harris
My name is Dawn Harris. I am native to Baldwin County and could not imagine living anywhere else. I grew up in Silverhill. I was in the very first Kindergarten class at Silverhill School. I graduated from Robertsdale High School. My husband of 22 years and I have two beautiful blessings, Katherine who is a junior in college, and Elizabeth who is a junior at RHS. My girls keep me very busy. We have 3 fur babies. A chocolate lab named Coco, a yellow lab named Mollie, and a ragdoll cat named Larry. We are active members of Heritage Church.
Some of my favorite things are teaching reading, Snicker candy bars, spending time with my family and my church family, walking, fishing, listening to music, and riding my golf cart.
I attended Faulkner State Community College where I received an Associate of Science degree. I then enrolled in the University of South Alabama where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. Since graduating from USA, I have held several interim positions, substituted in all elementary grade levels, worked with the After School Child Care program, and worked as an Intervention Teacher. Also, I have taught Kindergarten. This is my fourth year teaching 1st grade at Foley Elementary School. I Love First Grade!!
