Ms. Dawn Maldonado

Hi, I am Dawn Read-Maldonado and I have been in education for over 16 years. I was born in raised in Ocala and a product of Marion County Public Schools. I am also a 3rd generation educator. My grandmother was an elementary school teacher and actually started in a one-room schoolhouse. My mom was an educator here in MCPS schools as both a Home Economics teacher and Middle School Counselor. I have taught just about all levels, have worked in Early Learning, and now here at MOEs. My proudest joy are my 3 teenage boys (20, 17, and 14).

Currently, I am the ELA Content Area Specialist at Marion Oaks Elementary. So, what does that mean? That means that I am a resource for teachers and families in all things Reading, Writing, Language Arts, and Social Studies. Please explore this page to find resources that will assist at home in the ELA subject areas.  If you have any questions or requests, please don't hesitate to email me.
