Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Dawn McGuffin Tatum

With 29 years total in education, this will be my second year at Fredericksburg High School. I have spent a great deal of my career working in various locations in Texas, beginning in Victoria ISD where I grew up. Additionally, I have worked in Harlingen ISD, Cypress Fairbanks ISD and Georgetown ISD. I have had the opportunity to sponsor many organizations, be a director of Color Guard and coach in Track and Field. However, my greatest passion is in the classroom, engaging students in the world of Social Studies. I believe students should leave my classes with skill sets that allow them to apply Social Studies content to the real world.
