Dawn Sizemore has joined Shaker Heights Schools as the Coordinator for the Innovative Center for Personalized Learning. A 1999 graduate of Shaker Heights High School, Ms. Sizemore has extensive experience in nontraditional learning, online learning and instructional leadership.
Most recently, Ms Sizemore was the Principal at Lake Erie Preparatory School, an ICAN School in Cleveland. There, she was responsible for the planning, implementation and evaluation of the educational program. She had previously served as the school’s Dean of Student Learning and Instruction and its Associate Principal.
Prior to her work at ICAN, Ms. Sizemore spent 10 years working in education in Phoenix and Nashville. She was the Coordinator of Instructional Services at Maricopa Community College in Tempe, Ariz.; a Lead Curriculum Developer at Grand Canyon University, a university that enrolls 40,000 students in a traditional campus and online learning environment; and a Career and Technical Education Instructor at the national College of Business & Technology in Nashville, Tenn. Ms. Sizemore began her teaching career in the classroom at Metro Nashville Public Schools.
“I have a lot of different lenses through which I view nontraditional learning,” explains Ms. Sizemore. “I’m excited that I still get to work with the kids, but I’m also still an administrator. And now I can draw on my knowledge of online learning for students and to expand what’s offered to staff and to the community.”
