Ms. Dawn Grady

Welcome! I'm Dawn Grady. Technically it is Kimberly Dawn Stokes Grady (no hyphen)--but in real life, I just use Dawn Grady. 😄

I'm originally from North Carolina, but grew up in Ohio and graduated from The Ohio State University with my Bachelor of Arts in English.  I earned my teaching certification from East Carolina University and have worked in Craven County for over 20 years.  In 2017, I attained my Master of Education degree specializing in Language and Literacy from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and I am also a National Board Certified Teacher in Early Adolescence, English Language Arts. 

Learning about technology is one of my favorite things to do, along with reading all the fantasy books I can get my hands on and taking all kinds of photos of my family, friends, and pets Trixie & Stella. I try to go to as many student events as possible, so please say hello!  I'm looking forward to earning about my newest students and ready to have a super year!   

Please contact me at 252/514-6450 or by email at with any questions or comments.
