I attended Southwest Virginia Community College and received my Associates Degree in General Studies.

I continued my education at Bluefield State College to receive my Bachelor of Science in Education with my specialization in Pre K- Eighth Grade.

In order to maintain my certification, I have taken classes at UVA, UVA-Wise, Virginia Tech, and various classes offered by Tazewell County.


I have been blessed to be an educator in Tazewell County for 24 years.  I have taught primarily at the Elementary level during my teaching career.


My name is Dawn VanDyke.  I have one son, Mason, who is a junior at SVCC.  I have a collection of pets at my house.  I do not have a farm, more like an orphanage for animals!  I hope I can share my love of animals with my children in my classroom.
