Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, I am Mrs. Dawn Gant, the Gifted Math Teacher for students in the third through fifth grades at Illinois School. Additionally, I am a co-coach for Math Olympics and a co-sponsor of the Early Act Service Club. I am honored to say that I have taught in School District 162 for 18 years. I began my teaching career at Huth Middle School as a sixth grade Life Skills/Language Arts teacher. Three years later I transitioned to Sauk Elementary School where I taught sixth grade all subjects. After nine years, I transitioned to Illinois School where I currently teach Gifted Math instruction.
My goal as a Gifted Math Instructor is to challenge and foster mathematicians who explore, reason, support their thinking, and communicate mathematically. My classroom is a learning environment where every student is welcome and appreciated. At Illinois School, we are a team of students, parents, and teachers who work together to accomplish the goal of engaging our students in challenging, meaningful instruction to prepare them for college and beyond. Go Illinois Wolves!
Mrs. Dawn Gant
