Ms.Deming is a new art teacher at Centaurus High School. She graduated from Newark High School, Newark, Ohio. Her idols as a child were Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe, Roald Dahl, Ben Franklin, Gandhi, and Steve Prefontaine. She has brought tons of energy and great artistic ability with her. Dawn was an art teacher for the past three years at Manhattan Middle School of Arts and Academics  helping to create a state recognized art program.

When asked why she wanted to be an art teacher Dawn’s response was  “I want learners to become passionate about something, to create things that they never thought possible, to work for a cause rather than applause  to use art as an outlet and a means of communication, and to enjoy learning so it becomes a lifelong habit.” Centaurus has been impacted my Ms. Deming’s great spirit and we have effected her also. Centaurus has been extremely welcoming to her and she love’s the pride and school spirit the students and staff show for their school.

In her own words, Dawn said how Centaurus has impacted her  “As a new teacher, I am discovering small impacts everyday. At this time, the greatest impacts have been from the students–their strong work habits, willingness to learn, and untapped potential.” An interesting fact about Dawn is she has one large circular tattoo that was tapped into her shoulder during a traditional Mescalero Apache Tribal ceremony. She said “You receive different layers depending on your personal growth. Hmm… for some reason I haven’t earned the last layer :).”

Dawn had a life changing experience in working as an art teacher on the Mescalero Apache reservation in Mescalero, New Mexico, It taught her the importance of culture, respect of others, spirituality, and the connection to all living things. her greatest achievements are receiving her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees and her relationships with her family.

Deming is a huge Halloween fan when asked why her answer was quite amazing: “My favorite holiday is Halloween because it is the one time of the year people and pets are encouraged to wear outrageous costumes, candy is freely handed out, and you don’t have to worry about what gift to buy someone.”  This amazing energetic teacher has brought a great spirit to our school.
