Dawn Waters grew up in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois and moved to California in 1987. After taking just one class at Mt. SAC she quit her job as an Office Manager/Veterinary Assistant and went back to school full time at Mt. San Antonio College. Dawn became very involved at Mt. SAC & showed on the Beef & Sheep Show Team. Also, she was very involved at the Horse Unit & helped with the horse breeding program.
After receiving her A.S. degree at Mt. SAC she continued her education at Cal Poly, Pomona. Dawn became an Agricultural Ambassador at Cal Poly & was responsible for recruiting students to the Agriculture Program. She graduated in 1998 with a degree in Animal Science.
After graduating from Cal Poly, Dawn came back to work at Mt. SAC as their Registered Veterinary Technician & Adjunct Professor. She fell in love with teaching & decided to get her High School Teaching Credential, so she could start teaching full time. She has taught Biology, Veterinary Science, Natural Science, Peer Counseling & Link Crew at both Chino Hills High School & Santiago High School. She loved what she did, but her heart was always at Mt. SAC.
