Ms. Dawn Ackerman

Hello!  My name is Dawn Ackerman, and I was born and raised in Pennsylvania.  I moved to Florida at the age of sixteen and have called this wonderful state my home since then!  Blue skies and sunshine make Florida a paradise home for me!


I have a grown daughter, who is a dental hygienist, as well as two grandsons, age 9 and 11.  I am fortunate they live close by and see them often.  


This will be my 23rd year teaching, having taught preschool at The Learning Tree for three years, The Cornerstone School for eleven years, at Saddlewood Elementary two years, Oakcrest Elementary for four years, and third and fourth grades here at Madison Street.  The majority of my teaching experience has been in Fourth Grade, fourteen years, but I have also taught 3rd and 5th Grade, as well as managed the Media Center and IT departments at The Cornerstone School.  


I LOVE being a teacher!  The joy and sense of purpose I receive from helping children grow and accomplish goals motivates me to work even harder on their behalf.  I will get to know your child's strengths and challenges and will help them stretch or build the areas they need to become successful fourth graders - ready to master the fifth grade goals that await them.  


I welcome your input and encourage your participation in their fourth grade journey.  Please don't hesitate to contact me at or call me at 671-7250.
