Hello, my name is Dawn Raschke and I am so proud to have had the opportunity to be an Ocelot for the past 9 years.
I have a Master's in Education from the University of North Texas. My concentration was in Special Education and ESL. I have a BBA in Human Resource Management from the University of Texas, San Antonio. I have four beautiful children: 2 girls and 2 boys. My oldest daughter is a Kindergarten teacher in Lubbock ISD. My second, she is a Pre-Vet major at Oklahoma State University. My son is a student at Collin Creek Community College and my last child, he is a senior at Plano Senior Highschool. If that isn't enough to keep me busy, I have 3 furry children, my dogs, Paul, Candie and Duke. I love to spoil them.
Some of my interests are hiking, camping, and biking. I have participated in 3 long bike adventures, MS 150s. Two were in San Antonio and one was the Frisco to Ft. Worth. In my spare time, I also like to read.
Aldridge Elementary school has been my second home for 9 years. I love teaching my students. As a Special Education teacher, I believe everyone can learn and be successful academically. We all learn in different ways and have different needs to be successful. With the right educational environment, we can all achieve academic success. I look forward to another great year as an Ocelot.
