Jenny Givens is honored to join Dawson Middle School as our new Assistant Principal. She comes to us from Gainesville City School District after 15 years of teaching high school ELA. 

Positively impacting others has always been important to Mrs Givens. She knew early on that teaching was in her future and pursued her degree in English with a writing concentration at North Georgia College and State University. Upon graduating, she obtained her first job at her alma mater, Gainesville High School, and completed her Masters program in Education at Piedmont College the same year. Knowing that leadership was a field that she desired to enter, Mrs. Givens began her Educational Specialist in Leadership which she obtained in 2009. In her 15 years of teaching, Mrs Givens grew her leadership skills and knowledge through coaching Varsity Basketball cheerleading, advising Student Council and the GHS yearbook program, serving as a member of the Leadership Team, and leading the ELA department as Department Head. Through her experience in the classroom and extracurricular activities, she formed her strong core beliefs that all children can and will learn, relationships are essential to success, and every student should leave school each day knowing that they are valued. 
Jenny and her husband Scott have two children: Maddie (11) who is involved in competition cheerleading and James (10) who is an avid golfer and loves basketball. She looks forward to supporting the amazing teachers and students at DCMS and becoming part of the One Dawson Family.
