Hello! My name is Dawn Utendorf. It is such a privilege to be teaching FIRST GRADE at Cool Spring. I have my Masters Degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy. I love kids and helping them learn is such a rewarding experience. I have taught Kindergarten and first grade for a total of 10 years in Fairfax County and Loudoun County. I live here in Leesburg with my husband Tom and our four children. Our two older daughters, Emily and Claire are in 11th and 10th grade at Heritage HS. We have a daughter and son here at Cool Spring, Grace is in 5th grade and Thomas, our son is in first.
