Dodson named Teacher of the Year

Published: Thursday, February 7, 2013 at 10:50 AM.

Whether pulling from her own pocket money for a child’s lunch or class supplies, or allowing a child in a tough home situation the safety of her home, Dodson is present when her students need her, Ramsey said.

“She is a nurturer, that is a good word to describe her,” Ramsey said. “She donates her time, energy and money to her students.

“She wholeheartedly cares about her students. She is totally dedicated and gives above and beyond every single day. I put her wherever there was a need, she is that good and caring with her students.”

Dodson will go on to represent the district in state Teacher of the Year competition, the winner to be announced in the spring during a convention in Orlando.

As Gulf County’s Teacher of the Year, Dodson will attend the convention and participate in a series of workshops.

“This is an ‘A’ school and I can’t think of a better honor,” Norton said after hugging Dodson. “We are honored to honor her.”
