Our teachers across the county are truly game-changers. They are dedicated, passionate and truly know how to engage each of their Mrs. Dawn, September National Teacher of the Month Winnerstudents every day.

The process of choosing just one teacher each month is beyond difficult, but we are pleased to announce that our 2019 September National Teacher of the Month is Dawn E. Nelson Stovall of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of San Antonio, TX at Stone Oak!

Ms. Dawn has been with us since Stone Oak opened in 2018. She loves working with her students! She is not only a wonderful teacher but she’s a doula. How cool is that! Ms. Dawn makes everyone in the building laugh every minute of the day. We love Ms. Dawn and we are so thankful to have her on the Stone Oak team!

She is such a standout! Here’s why.
