Dawn is an educator, poet, and playwright from New York City with over fifteen years English teaching experience at all levels—from preschool to graduate school. She is passionate about creating engaging, memorable, and academically robust experiences for her students and often mixes the creative arts into the critically analytic curriculum. A specialist in Early Modern Drama (especially Shakespeare), Dawn is currently investigating prehistoric theatre and ritual on the Mediterranean Island of Malta and is currently working with a Science in the City / Malta Chamber of Scientists / Malta Arts Council grant to build a replica of a prehistoric theatre to stage a show about archaeological heritage. She is the author of several academic articles and theatre reviews; two poetry chapbooks; a forthcoming monograph entitled King James and the Theatre of Witches; and a children’s novel, Lily in the Enchanted Forest (as yet unpublished). In her spare time, Dawn also loves playing the piano, writing songs, hiking in nature, and playing with her pet rabbit, Cupid!
