Westside Teacher of the Year: Mr. Paul Dunn, math ESE support

"It is an honor to be voted Teacher of the Year for Westside K-8. I want to thank my colleagues for that honor, and it's my distinct privilege to work  with such a fantastic faculty and staff. I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to teach and mentor a dynamic student body. Learning is a journey and requires a strong commitment in order to succeed. I thoroughly enjoy helping students develop a plan in order to meet their academic goals. Each day my focus is to make a positive impact in the lives of our students."
