Dawn Spranger


Dawn Spranger grew up in Anaheim, California. In 1997, she earned her bachelor’s degree from Chapman University in Film and TV. During her last year at Chapman, she was offered a position at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City. After several years at Sony, she decided to stay home to raise her children. During this time, she started substitute teaching at public and private schools in Orange County. This is where she found her calling to teach, and so in 2008, she decided to go back to school and earn her teaching credential from Azusa Pacific University.

Since 2010, Mrs. Spranger has taught full time in public and private schools. She taught middle school Language Arts and Social Studies, as well as 4th grade. She enjoys integrating Literature and Social Studies to help students achieve a higher level of understanding of history. Her educational philosophy is based on teaching the whole child, and her biggest strength is helping a child find his or her fullest potential. She is passionate about guiding children to become productive, positive role models for the future.

In her spare time, Mrs. Spranger enjoys watching movies (May the force be with you), watching the LA Dodgers play (GO BLUE), and spending time with her family, especially during bike rides by the beach.
