Each Spring the Pullman Public Schools Board of Directors awards one teacher with the "Dedicated Teacher Award". This year, based on a heartfelt nomination from Principal Stephanie Bray, Franklin Elementary School Special Education teacher Dominick Ventresco was honored with the recognition from the Board.
Just a few of the kind words Ms. Bray had to say about Mr. Ventresco:
“Mr. Dom continually contributes to the delivery and articulation of Specially Designed Instruction (SDI) in our district, increases the capacity of others, and is a guiding light for our students. Last year, Dom was provided the opportunity to begin our district’s Intensive Learning Center. He demonstrated not only taking action, but also building together and making shared decisions to help grow the program into what it is today. Building the program from the “ground-up” with support from our district staff has proven that Dom has the ability to not only a have a vision for providing SDI, but also provide it on a daily basis for all ranges of the students he serves. He continually puts students first and demonstrates mutual respect and trust with not only his students, but guardians and staff as well.”
Congratulations, Mr. Dom!
