Mrs. Dawn Fresquez
I am a Colorado Native having lived in the Thornton area since birth. I attended both Horizon and Thornton High Schools and graduated in 1993. I spent 4 years in San Diego California while stationed in the U.S. Navy and then transferred into the U.S. Army Reserves and served another 5 years. I am a single mother to my son Luis and my daughter Cheyenne who keep me busy with sports, school functions and whatever else they find to keep me on the go.
My inspiration to be in education developed after seeing my daughter and her struggles as a preschooler. We have experienced many ups and downs in her ducational career and I do what I do so that I can help other children achieve and succeed in school.
As an Intervention paraprofessional at the elementary level, I saw numerous learning abilities and successes throughout my classes. Being able to see the smiles and the "ah ha" moments when it clicked was very satisfying and rewarding.
My favorite Quote would have to be:
Today you are you, that is truer than true, there is noone alive who is youer than you. Dr. Seuss
