Mrs. Dotson

Welcome to Kindergarten! I am Mrs. Dotson, and I love being a teacher at Brinson Memorial Elementary. This is my third year at BME and I am so happy to be here. Teaching kindergarten is what I have always wanted to do, and I strive to have my students (who I will call "my kids") wanting to come to school and loving to learn. 

A little about me...I was born and raised in Connecticut. I completed 2 years of college while living there. I moved to Jacksonville, North Carolina in August of 2009 to be with my husband who is a Gunnery Sergeant United States Marine. We moved to Pensacola, Florida for 2.5 years where I finished my degree with honors in Elementary Education from The University of West Florida. We moved back to Connecticut for 3 years and while there had our daughter, Meredith, and our son, Henry. Meredith is 5 years old and in kindergarten (in the classroom right next to me!), and Henry is 3.5 years old and in preschool. We moved to Havelock in February of 2016 where my husband is stationed at MCAS Cherry Point.
