Welcome to Mrs. Gawne's Website!

I am the 4th and 5th grade special education resource teacher. This is my fourth year in this position and my seventh teaching. 

I provide services in the general education classroom as well as small groups in the resource room. I am thrilled to be co-teaching with Ms. Darley and Mrs. McDaniels for writing this year as well!

Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns. I am excited for a wonderful school year!
