HI! I am such a LUCKY person!!! Each year, I get to work with a new group
of Wonderful People and we become a Room 5 Family!
I lived in Milford for over 25 years. My two children went to Calf Pen
Meadow, East Shore Middle School, and Foran High School. My son, Kevin, was in the
United States Marine Corps. He is living with his fiancee, Jessica, in London while going to King's College on the GI Bill. My
daughter, Stephanie, graduated from Central CT State University in 2011. She is now a
Physical Education Teacher in Milford! Your family may be lucky enough to have Miss Dawid as a teacher!
School Year~2013-2014~ will be my fifteenth year teaching Kindergarten in
Milford. I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a
Bachelor of Arts in English. In 2006, I completed my Master of Arts in
Elementary Education. In 2010, I graduated with my Sixth Year in Holistic Thinking.
I consider myself a lifelong learner and I strive to create a
class of lifelong learners!
I love to read, read, read!!! I was in the play, Guys and Dolls at Law High School this past summer!
I enjoy physical fitness. I like to lift weights, do yoga, go cycling, and dance at Zumba because I also love to eat,
especially chocolate! I enjoy writing, swimming, sunning,
golfing, and having fun with my friends!
Our job is ...to learn. To become independent, curious, problem solving learners.
In Room 5, we are appreciated as individuals and encouraged to become the BEST we can
be!!! This is a good goal for anyone: children AND adults; even us teachers
and parents!!! Ask yourself..."Is this my BEST work?" or "Am I being my
BEST?". Many things are not in our control in this life, but much more of
our attitude and actions are in our control than most of us realize. Let's
learn from our mistakes and rejoice when we truly do our BEST!!!
