Fifth Grade Math, Fifth Grade Science


In 2008, I graduated from Dyersburg State Community College with an Associate's degree in teaching K-6.

After graduation, I transferred to The University of Memphis and graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor's degree in Integrated Studies (K-6 Education).  


Then, I went back to school and completed my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Union University.



After graduating from The University of Memphis, I began working at Christ Classical Academy in Dyersburg, TN. I taught 5th-8th grade social studies, math, and keyboarding from January 2011-May 2012. I was graciously offered a position as a 5th grade teacher at Holice Powell Elementary. I love Holice Powell and teaching 5th grade! 


Hi! I am Kayla Dawson, and I have been teaching 5th grade at Holice Powell Elementary for six years. I am married to Richard, who is also a teacher. We have been blessed with three wonderful children. Chase is five, Chesslee is three, and Chander is one. I spend all of my spare time with my family.
