Mrs. Dawn Yarr Pollard
Hello. My name is Dawn Yarr Pollard and I have been proudly serving Pioneer Union School students since 1992. I received my teaching degree from Fresno State in 1989. I have experience teaching first through eighth grade, and 6-8 Reading Intervention, using Evidence Based Literacy Instruction strategies as well as leveled literacy instruction. Currently, I am teaching 6th grade language arts and social studies as well as one group of reading intervention.
Growing up, I was priviledged to be the daughter of an Air Force officer; I lived in more than four states and three countries, and have called Hanford home for the past 30 years. My childhood taught me to appreciate my country but to also value the opportunity to explore other cultures.
I am the proud mother of two grown sons, Joshua and Brandon who are graduates of Pioneer Middle School. Josh is a Fresno County high school teacher and Brandon is an occupational therapist in Washington State. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, gardening, feeding the humming birds and my pet turtle, spending time with my husband, friends and family, and of course planning my next great adventure!
