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.

This year I will strive to make learning fun, build students' confidence and encourage them to take risks.  First grade is such an important year for nurturing a love of school and reading.  I will guide the children to go beyond what they ever thought they could do.  I look forward to working with the whole family as we form a partnership that will keep your child excited, engaged and successful.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns and we will schedule a conference.  My email is
