Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Dawn Utendorf

  I am so excited to be here at Harper Park for my fourth year as the Reading Specialst for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Education from Nazareth College in Kalamazoo, Michigan and my Master's in Reading and Literacy from Walden University. Prior to working at Harper Park, I was a kindergarten and first grade teacher for 15 years. I live in Leesburg with my husband and 4 children. We love to go to the beach and on weekends you may find me strolling around downtown Leesburg enjoying all our town has to offer.
