Hello. My name is Dawn McKinnie. I have been an elementary teacher since 1997. I have been a Corona Ranch Rocket since we opened in 2002. I have taught both 5th grade and 2nd grade in CNUSD and LAUSD, and now I'm excited to teach 3rd Grade. I absolutely love teaching and learning with my students each and every day. Each day is a new adventure of learning and I love watching my students grow and blossom each and every year. I am originally from Michigan. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Michigan State University. I obtained my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from California State University Northridge. Aside from teaching, I enjoy reading, scrapbooking, and spending quaility time with my friends and family. However, my greatest joy is spending time with my daughter, Jaidyn, who is also a Corona Ranch Rocket! I'm looking forward to another wonderful year at Corona Ranch Elementary School.
