Third Grade

As the oldest students of Lower Elementary, Highlands Christian’s third grade gets a taste of leadership. They love getting the privilege of key speaking parts in the musical programs. Students enjoy studying European countries, making elaborate paper dolls, and tasting international cuisines. Their creativity is nurtured all year long through writing and illustrating in personal class journals, reading riveting classics aloud, and working on various projects. Stepping into Mrs. Dawson’s thoughtfully decorated classroom forms special memories for students.

D'Ana Dawson

Mrs. Dawson is passionate about investing in the lives of youth. For her, teaching is not only the academic training of minds, but equally — if not more importantly — guiding the personal growth of each student. Having watched all three of her own children learn and develop using the Carden Method curriculum, Mrs. Dawson is confident that it is a superior way of learning. She believes that it is vital that we teach life skills and Biblical principles, in order to strengthen our children morally and spiritually. “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”  -Proverbs 22:6 

Mrs. Dawson brings 20 years of teaching experience to HCS, having most recently taught at Highlander School for five years. She is a Dallas native, and a Baylor University alumna. She currently enjoys having her grandchildren at HCS, and spending time with her husband and family.
