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 12 years in Fairfax County and Loudoun County. I live here in Leesburg with my husband Tom and our four children. Our oldest daughter, Emily will begin her first year at the University of Pittsburgh. Claire will be a senior at Heritage HS, Grace is in 7th grade at Harper Park and our son Thomas, is in 3rd grade here at Cool Spring.
