My name is Dawn Porter. I have been teaching 38 years, all of it in the Mt. Vernon City School system. I grew up in the Mansfield area graduating from Mansfield Senior High School.
I earned my B.S. in Elementary Education from The Ohio State University. I earned my Master's degree in Elementary Education from The Ohio State University as well. I taught at Elmwood Elementary for the first 13 years of my career then moved to Pleasant Street Elementary. I have taught grades 1-4 throughout my career.
I have two grown sons and two grandchildren, Cameron and Rachel. Animals have always been my passion. I have been running a dog rescue from my home since 2006. While my children were growing up, we had many kinds of animals living on our farm. I currently still have five horses, a donkey, chickens, one goose, and many dogs.
