Dawn Pannell has been a STARBASE Robins 5th Grade Program Instructor since July 2003. She earned an Associate’s Degree from Spartanburg Methodist College in Spartanburg, SC and completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Family & Child Development from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC. Dawn is originally from Rock Hill, SC. She moved to Athens, GA and began teaching Preschool immediately after graduation. Working with several Christian ministries allowed her to live in various locations within the US and abroad.
Once all of her four children became school age, she entered back into the educational profession. After several years of teaching third grade in the public school system, Dawn joined the STARBASE Robins’ team. She loves the “hands-on, minds-on” approach to learning with the 5th grade program. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends.
