“I am learning that my kids don’t need a perfect mom or teacher. Instead, what they need is for me to keep going and never give up on them or myself.

Dawn Spence

Teaching Manager

Dawn is a homeschooler, the SPED Homeschool Teaching manager, a department coordinator of her local co-op, and a group facilitator. She has been married to her husband David for 16 years and has three children. She has a son and twin daughters.


Before becoming a homeschooling mom, Dawn worked as a teacher and special education teacher for 10 years. She taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade for 7 years, then was blessed to teach PPCD and children with Autism in an ABLE unit.



Dawn has written IEP goals for her school children and now writes her daughter’s IEP at home. When she had her twins she stayed home as one of her daughter’s was diagnosed with multiple health and developmental delay. Also, through working with her daughter’s who have sensory issues, she learned how to adapt her curriculum towards a hands-on sensory approach.


Dawn is a gifted instructor who has the ability to bring out the teacher in everyone, especially showing parents how to modify curriculum to meet the specific learning needs of their child.
