McDonald Elementary | 5th Grade/CIP Team Leader
My name is Dawn Wheeler. I graduated from Broken Bow High School. I received my Associate’s degree from Mid-Plains Community College, my Bachelor’s degree from Chadron State College with a Field Endorsement in Elementary Education and a Minor in Math, and my Master’s degree also from Chadron State College in Educational Administration-Elementary Principal with Endorsements in Curriculum/Assessment Supervisor and 7-12 Principal. Currently I am working on an additional endorsement for School Counseling.
I am a fifth grade teacher at McDonald Elementary. Before teaching fifth grade, I was a third grade teacher for eight years. Prior to my career in education, I was a legal assistant for my husband, Rob.
I believe every student has the ability to learn and to be successful. My goal as a fifth grade teacher is to prepare students as they transition to middle school. I feel honored to play a small part in the educational lives of my students.
