Ms. Hormel

Hello, my name is Dawn Hormel and I am so excited to be teaching your child this year.

I was born and raised in Enid, Oklahoma.  I attended Phillips University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.  I traveled and lived in Europe and Egypt for 7 years after graduating from college.  I have two amazing daughters that attended Las Brisas Elementary.  They have both finished their undergraduates degree.  Kendall is 24 years old and went to GCU.  She double majored in Pre-Law and Biological Studies. She is working on an accelerated BSN.   Payton is 22 years old and recently graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Los Angeles with a degree in  Marketing and Product Development.  She has a very creative eye for design. She loves living in California and working in her field.  They both love to travel as much as I do. 

Centurion and Summer are my "super" pets.   Centurion is an American Holstiener.  He is 11 years old and loves to run, play and jump.  He really does fly through the air...  Kendall competes with him for show jumping.  Summer is 2 years old.  She is a very energetic yellow labrador that keeps me on my toes.  My hope is to train her as a therapy dog and use her to visit children and elderly people to brighten their day.  My pets are a very important part of my life.  I have always been an animal lover.  They set a very good example of unconditional love and support.

I have been involved with Las Brisas either through volunteering or teaching for the past 15 years.  The Las Brisas community, teachers and families hold a special place in my heart.
