​Welcome to Mrs. Edgar's Page


Mrs. Dawn Edgar - Digital Learning Coach  

I have been teaching since 1994.  23 years!  Wow--they go fast. I have been at High Plains for 17 of those years as a Special Education Resource Teacher, a Title 1 Coordinator, a Fourth Grade Classroom Teacher, and our building's Digital Learning Coach.  

I am a lifelong learner, so my special interests change with time. Lately, I am most interested in coding, robotics, project-based learning and best practices of student-centered instruction. I aim to teach our learners the skills they'll need to prepare for thriving in the 21st century: communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. These are the "4 C's" of 21st Century learning. Check out my legendary website​ to learn more. 

I love spending time with my two sons, Christian (19) and Seth (12), and my husband, Jim.  Exercising, reading novels, cooking, making things, and collecting all things geeky are some of my favorite things to do in my spare time. Also, I am a bonafide Pottergirl, an ​​X-Phile, and a dedicated Whovian. Currently, I am working to earn the Trekkie moniker.​

I. LOVE. High Plains Elementary School. I love our loyal families, our dedicated staff members, and most of all, the students whose smiling faces I am privileged to support and learn with daily. I believe that we are all naturally great at some things and, with hard work and persistence,  there is always room to grow. I believe that we all do better together. I am very lucky that both my passion and my responsibility centers on educating the whole child and making learning a pleasure for every unique young person.  ​

Together, we WORK HARD and GET SMART. Together, we HOWL! 

Learn about strategies, digital tools, and all kinds of ways to enhance learning for the 21st Century student.
