Dawn Schroeder

Director and Administrator

I joined the staff at Tomah School of Childhood in October of 2021. I am currently working on my BS in Business Administration Management at WGU and have also completed courses in Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education. My previous experience includes working in the non-profit sector, as a substitute Special Ed aide for TASD,  a preschool teacher in TX as well as running my own in-home daycare.  I have 4 children ages 22, 21, 18 & 13.  I enjoy spending time with my family, kayaking, live music and camping. 


Holly Larson

4K Teacher

I began my education as a student at the Tomah School of Childhood and am excited to be back as the 4K teacher!  I have taught kindergarten and 4K in the Sparta School District for the past 27 years. Seeing children develop a love of learning through exploration, discovery and play is a magical sight! 

My family and I love cooking together, playing games, golfing, watching sports of all kinds and relaxing up north.  My husband, Greg, and I have 3 amazing boys - Jakob (23) serves in the National Guard and is going to school to become a police officer; Isaac (16) loves performing with show choir and theatre; and Patrick (13) loves all things jazz related.

 I have been part of the TSC staff for 13 years, and have worked with children for over 25 years. After 25 years I still get excited to go to work and spend time helping the kids grow and learn. I am married to my husband of 29 years and we have two kids, my son Dirk (28), and my daughter Sari (24). I love spending time with my family, cooking, baking and going outdoors for walks, hikes & running.
