Dawn Peterson

Director of Content and Partnerships

Dawn started her career in education as a math teacher in Bellingham, MA. She served as an 8th grade teacher for 14 years and was an early adopter of ASSISTments, which she used in her own classroom for approximately 10 years. ASSISTments made such an impact on her teaching routine and philosophy of teaching that she joined the ASSISTments team to help other teachers succeed with using data to drive their instruction.

As the Director of Content & Partnerships at The ASSISTments Foundation, Dawn manages high quality curricula and other content that is available for teachers through ASSISTments. She is also working with curriculum and PL partners in order to continuously seek out opportunities to best support educators.

During her free time, she can be found spending time with her husband and two kids; planting, tending, and harvesting fruits and vegetables from her garden; or working her way through Stephen King's collection of work.

I personally have experienced the value of using ASSISTments for data driven instruction and I'm so happy to share that knowledge with other educators.
