Mrs. Pope's Bio
My name is Dawn Pope, 4th Grade Teacher at Spring Brook Elementary. I began my teaching career in 1997 at Spring Brook and have enjoyed being there ever since. I have taught both 3rd and 4th grade. I have a Masters Degree in Reading from Lewis University. Also, I am a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT). Having my past students come back and visit after years of being gone is the highest compliment I can ask for. When I am not teaching I love spending time with my family especially with my son Logan. I love gardening and working on my flower beds outside. Inside I love to decorate and organize.
