About Dawn
Dawn White

It’s the start of a new year and I’m excited to get going.  This will be my 8th year at Barton, 19th in the district.  Boy, am I getting old!  I live in Inver Grove Heights with my husband, Clarence and my sons, Jake (a 2nd grader) and Trevor (a kindergartener) and our two guinea pigs, Cinnamon and Tanto.  Life is pretty busy so I’m not always punctual with emails but I try.  It’s the best way to get a hold of me.  Feel free to call school or send a note.  I’ll go through the whole year at parent information night.  If you have a question before then, please let me know.

I started working at Barton in 2004 in grades 1 and 2.  I started my teaching career at Bancroft Elementary in 1993 in Media.  After 11  years at Bancroft I was excessed and ended up at Barton.  I am thrilled to be here.

I went to the U of MN for my undergraduate degree and completed my Masters degree through St. Mary's University.

I am a Responsive Classroom facilitator in the summer.  When I was in my masters program I took my first Responsive Classroom training and really knew this was the best thing for myself and students.  Since 2000 I have taken more training and am now a facilitator.

  • If you need to contact me the best ways are by email, a note or calling school and asking to be put through to my room.  I don't always get to check my voice mail.
