Mrs. Carlo Dawson
I truly believe all students possess a gift or talent to “shine.” Many just need the help of a teacher to foster that gift; therefore, I educate in order to positively impact our world of learners. I am so elated to share this year with you. It is my intention that you gain an appreciation for words, a respect for cultures, and an openness to learn. As a member of the inaugural staff of South Pointe High school, I am proud to be a part of a school which sets traditions of integrity, and community, and excellence.
I am the proud founder and advisor of PROGENY, the school’s diversity club, as well the founding advisor for the school’s award-winning ImPulse Literary Magazine and Creative Writing curriculum. On a lighter note, I have two beautiful children and a loving husband. I love music, dancing, singing, story-telling, acting, community service and civic engagement, hosting baby and bridal showers, spending time with family and friends, and writing creatively, (plays, short stories, and, of course, writing songs and poems).
As we embark upon this year, please remember as we let our “light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”—Marianne Williamson
So, dear students, please be the “light”. Be your best “you.”
Bless Your Soul,
