Each year, twenty-four teachers from the eight regions of the state are selected for this prestigious award. Mr. Dunn truly has a heart for teaching and preparing young minds to become leaders of tomorrow. He inspires his students to think critically and to explore the realm of science. Students often feel regret for leaving his class to go to the next grade level while incoming sixth graders are excited about having him as their upcoming teacher. Mrs. Jenny Beasley, 7th grade English language arts teacher, won this award last year and Mr. Dunn is this year’s award winner. Meece Middle School has been recognized with back-to-back recipients of this prominent award which speaks to the level of professionalism and quality of education happening in the Somerset Independent School District.
