About Ms. Dawneen Zabinske-Smith

I am one of three middle school mathematics teachers at Military Magnet Academy. This is my sixth year at MMA. I have taught all middle school grade levels (6th through 8th). For the 2015-2016 school year, I will be teaching most of the 7th grade -- Course 2 for CP students and Math Accelerated (Pre-Algebra) for Honor students -- along with one small group of 6th graders (mixed gender). I am a mathematician, having earned a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics from Bellevue University in Nebraska. Teaching was not my first occupation. I spent 9 years on active duty with the U.S. Air Force in the intelligence community. During my military career, I worked for the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) at air bases in Nebraska, South Korea, and Hawaii. When I exited the military, I spent 8 years aboard on Okinawa where I was a full-time substitute teacher for K-6 grades at a Department of Defense Dependent School. I received a post-baccalaureate degree in teaching middle school math from Western Governors University in 2009. My student teaching was also completed at Military Magnet Academy.
