Ms. Dawn Erickson

Hello!  My name is Dawn Erickson.  I'm so excited to be a part of Cartersville Primary teaching First Grade.   I am starting my 19th year of teaching and 4 of those years have been in Cartersville City Schools.  I have Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education from Ottawa University in Phoenix.  Prior to teaching First Grade at CPS, I taught Pre-K at Kids and Company, and at several other private schools.  I have also taught First and Second grade in Arizona.

I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona.  My family and I moved to Georgia in 2003.  There will always be a special place in my heart for the desert, but I LOVE the seasons and the weather in Georgia!  I have two beautiful daughters.  My oldest, Maddie, is 21 and working on an apprenticeship.  My youngest, Ella, is a senior in high school.  I enjoy crafting and trying new ideas on pinterest.  My new favorite project is refinishing wood furniture.  I love spending time with my family, traveling, coffee, Pinterest, and watching movies.

 I am SUPER excited about getting to know you and your child this year. We are going to learn so much, and may even have some fun along the way. I am REALLY looking forward to helping your child grow their LOVE for learning.
