My name is Brenda Gist and I have been teaching third grade at Dawson for 15 years. I live in Purdon with my husband and two children Bodee and Shelby. I graduated from Dawson, and both of my children have also. I enjoy teaching in Dawson, and it is a very special place to me. I can't wait to teach your children and have a great year.
