"Put your heart, mind, and soul, into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success." - Swami Sivananda
Hello. My name is Dawn Cockrell. This is my twenty-fourth year in education. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Transylvania University. I then attended the University of Kentucky and completed my Master of Arts degree in Elementary Education/Reading Specialist and my Rank I in School Administration. I taught fourth and fifth grade students at Dixie Magnet Elementary in Lexington, KY for six years. In 1997, I moved to Montgomery County and continued the rest of my career in education teaching elementary students at Mount Sterling Elementary. I have also served as district Elementary Curriculum Coordinator, Elementary Director of Instruction, and Director of Instruction K-12. Serving the students and parents in this community has been my focus and passion, and I consider it an honor and privilege to teach these very special third grade students at Mount Sterling Elementary!
My husband Kevin and I are VERY blessed to have two children: Will - an eighth grade student and Caroline - a sixth grade student. Whenever possible, we enjoy spending family time at home on our farm.
