Ms. Dawn Henline

I am excited to begin my first year as principal of Sawmills School!  I am a native of Caldwell County and attended Appalachian State where I received a Bachelor's degree in Business Management, obtained my Certificate in Education, and a Master's degree in School Administration. I taught Math and Business at Freedom High School for two years before moving to Cape Coral, FL where I taught fourth grade for eight years. Upon returning to NC, I taught 6th Grade ELA and Social Studies at Gamewell Middle for five years and then served as the Middle Grades Social Studies Instructional Facilitator for CCS for five years.  I spent the last three years as an Assistant Principal of West Caldwell High School. When I have free time, I enjoy traveling, reading, baking, knitting, and spending time with my family.  My immediate family consists of two daughters Ashtyn and Kendal, my son, Jerry, granddaughter, Arden, and chocolate lab, Presley.
