Dawn Rowlands

For more than 20 years, Dawn Rowlands has given her best efforts to follow and implement the Montessori Method at Acorn. Her goal has always been to teach her students to be fundamentally strong and confident learners; to love and respect their parents and those in authority; to be kind to themselves and others—and to go out and change the world. What she finds most rewarding about being a part of the Acorn experience is doing what she was “called” to do, and tapping into the potential of each child while having an influence on molding their personality. She has been changed forever in this process, and the children have taught her to live in the moment. Dawn hopes that her students will remember that she helped them to learn with excitement and anticipation—and that she was funny!

Dawn likes to focus on a healthy lifestyle, which includes walking and cooking nutritious foods.
