Welcome to Mrs. Dawson's 5th Grade!

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I know this year will be an exciting year for all of us. I'm delighted to have your child in my class. My name is Christy Dawson. I have been a Glenwood Gator for a long time. I have been teaching and coaching at Glenwood going on 19 years. I graduated from Troy University with a B.S. in Elementary Education. I have two children who are Gators! I love being a Glenwood Gator!
