2022 Teacher Of The Year

DAN DOLCE

Dan Dolce

North East ISD

From my inception as a teacher in 2007, my goal in education has been to use my skills to positively impact students through the use of technology and creativity. Throughout my career, thus far, I can say my contributions to various types of learning communities have allowed not only students but parents and colleagues to benefit from the work being done in my classroom. My students have gone on to work for fortune 500 companies, major tech firms, video game companies, and more. Even while seeing the levels of success my former students have gone on to attain, perhaps the greatest degree of my success can be measured in the unexpected messages I receive from old students, simply saying, “Dear Mr. Dolce, Thank You for everything…” By dedicating my educational platform to creating a space for creative freedom and explorative learning, I have fostered an environment for success.
