My name is Dawn Baldwin. I am the Academic Coach at SME. I am originally from Connecticut and moved to North Carolina when I attended college at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Education. I later earned my Master's in Education in K-12 Literacy from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I taught in the classroom for 10 years before I became an Academic Coach. As an Academic Coach, I collaborate with teachers about instructional practices, planning, and curriculum. I also demonstrate exemplar lessons for teachers and provide professional development for the staff. I am thrilled to be a part of a dedicated team of professionals who love to teach and learn!
