Dallas nonprofit honors Teacher of the Year

(The Dallas Morning News) On a Thursday afternoon, just two days before winter break, most of Rockwall-Heath High School’s hallways and classrooms stood quiet and empty. Except Denise Dudley’s.

Grasping a handful of balloons, the special education teacher was reeling from a small surprise celebration honoring her as Teacher of the Year by the Arc of Dallas.

As several of her fellow teachers looked on and cheered, Dudley was honored with two checks, each for $1,500 – one for her personal use, and the other for the district’s special education programs.
