About Dawn Marks

Dawn’s hometown is Brainerd, MN.  She started here at St. Francis School in 2014.

Dawn has an A.A & an A.S. from Central Lakes College and a B.S. from MN State University, Mankato. She also had an apprenticeship with the Orlando Shakespeare Theatre. Previous to working at St. Francis she worked in Costume Design & Construction and Theatre Production.

In her spare time, Dawn enjoys reading, spending time with family and friends, cooking (and eating), being outside any time of year and looking at historical books, photos and paintings.

"This is the most amazing job ever! Spending time with kids and teaching them that art is accessible (and do-able!) for everyone is a joy. I am learning new things all of the time, it's truly a blessing to be here!"
