Ms. Dawna McKenna

Welcome to third grade! A little about me...I spent my summer knitting, reading, and hiking. I feel very recharged and I am excited for the start of the school year. I have been teaching third grade at Yulupa Elementary School since 2008. Prior to having children, I taught first and fourth grades in Sonoma Valley. I attended the Santa Rosa Junior College prior to earning my Bachelor's Degree in Political Science at UC Santa Barbara. I earned my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential at Sonoma State University. I can't believe that I have been teacher for over 20 years!

I live in Bennett Valley with my husband, Andrew. We have two children, Charlie (freshman at Cal Poly) and Emma (sophmore at Montgomery High Schoo.) They are both are Yulupa "graduates." When I am not at their soccer games, volleyball, or tennis matches, I am an avid reader. My other obession is knitting. Luckily, I can knit just about anywhere, even at their sporting events.

I look forward to teaching your children and working with you this year!
