Mrs. Dawn Pellegrino
I have always had a passion for teaching which is why I decided to follow my heart and make a career change. I graduated from East Carolina University in December of 2010. I joined Riverwood in 2011 and I have taught kindergarten and fourth grade. I was born and raised in New Jersey and relocated to North Carolina, and love it! I am married and have two stepsons and a daughter. In my spare time I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends, traveling, cooking and shopping. I am looking forward to a successful year!
