Mrs. Dawn Bertrand - 5th Grade

  • Ms. Bertrand  

    I have wanted to be a teacher since I began my first year in school.  My kindergarten teacher was such an inspiration that I just knew that’s what I wanted to be when I grew up.  My parents were both in education as well.  Once out of high school, I began my college career at a community college and ended at UMSL where I became a certified elementary teacher.  During my college career, I married my husband Josh and we had two girls, Cora and Aubrey.  I began teaching in SLPS in Jan. of 2011 as a building sub at Buder and worked my way into my own 2nd grade classroom the follow school year.  I was a classroom teacher at Buder Elementary for 5 years, as well as a TA and building sub previously.  I then moved to Lyon, my present home, this is my 5th year here at Lyon.  I have taught many different grades and subjects here.  This year I am the fifth grade teacher.
