Mrs. Dawn Torries

Welcome to Art!
      My name is Dawn Torries and I am the Art Teacher at Gorenflo Elementary. I graduated from William Carey University in 2010 with a Bachelor's Degree in Art Education. I am currently working on a Master's in the Art of Teaching with a focus on Secondary Education. It is my 9th year teaching art and I LOVE my job! I could not picture myself doing any other job. On top of being a teacher, I am also a working freelance illustrator and graphic designer. Art has always been a passion of mine and I love telling stories through illustration. I live in Gulfport with my husband, Jeremy, and my two kitties, Freya and Angel. My assistant art teacher is Ms. Cummings! She is a digital and collage artist, as well as my assistant. I am excited about this year and we are going to make this the best year in art yet! Ms. Cummings and I cannot wait to meet you!
