Dawn Warriner comes from a family of teachers. Her grandfather, John E. Warriner, wrote the bestselling Warriner's English Grammar and Composition textbooks. Dawn says, "Teaching is like breathing to me. The moment I realized that kids liked my class and connected easily with my curriculum, I knew my path was teaching. I already loved my subject matter, so developing high quality curriculum that is interesting to students was the key."
