Hi! My name is Mrs. Dawn Strake and I’ve been a teacher here at Aviston Elementary for 13 years.  Throughout the years here, I have been a 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teacher. For the last two years, I have been the Title 1 teacher for the 1st-4th grades. Along with the Title 1 program, I also teach 4th grade Language Arts in the afternoon. I love teaching reading and writing! My favorite part about teaching is seeing a child make progress over the year.  Those “ah-ha” moments are why I love being a teacher!

I currently live in Germantown with my husband, Ryan, and our 3 children.  Ava, who’s 9, loves school and enjoys playing the flute.  Tyson, our 5-year-old, is all boy and loves to get dirty. Our youngest son, Van, 3, is Tyson’s little shadow and very stubborn. We also have a dog named Sunny who loves to chew on everything he’s not supposed to. Our kids sure do keep us busy! When I’m not running after our 3 children, I like to shop, camp, and exercise.

If you have any questions that I can help you with, please feel free to call or email me. Go Eagles!
