Mrs. Renée M. Dawson, Principal
I grew up in Charles Town, West Virginia and am the oldest and only girl of 3. After high school, I spent 17 wonderful years attending college and working in beautiful Kentucky. I have 2 sons, Jonathan and Damian. Both of my sons attend Eastern Kentucky University and are majoring in School Counseling and Social Work respectively. I have a 100 lb. German Shepherd named Jax who believes he is a Chihuahua. My husband and I are both avid football enthusiast. He loves the Washington Redskins and I am a member of the New Orleans Saints, Who Dat Nation! Geaux Saints! I love to travel and am notorious for watching a film or reading a book and researching the location and sharing with my husband that it will be our next vacation destination.My educational background began at Berea College in Berea, Kentucky majoring in French and minoring in Spanish. I transferred to Eastern Kentucky University where I received my undergraduate degree in French Education. I studied and lived in Paris, France as well as Nîmes, France as part of the Kentucky Institute for International Studies program through Murray State University. I received a Masters of Education in Educational Leadership from Shenandoah University and am currently a Doctoral candidate in Educational Leadership with a concentration in Special Education from Shenandoah University. Presently, I am preparing for a qualitative research dissertation. I have experience at both the middle and high school level, but count my experience as a mother of two college children as an additional invaluable asset in the role of principal.As I begin my 16th year with Loudoun County Public Schools and my 20th year in education, I cannot help but to reflect on the incredible journey that I have been fortunate enough to enjoy. I have been afforded a variety of experiences in education both in and out of Loudoun County and in each experience I have learned the value and interconnectedness of relationship building, student learning/achievement, and community. As I begin this next chapter in my education journey, I look forward to creating a vision for Brambleton Middle School that is founded in Community and Collaboration with a Commitment to Academic Achievement.
