I would like to nominate Mrs. Deborah Dunford for teacher of the month.  Mrs. Dunford goes above and beyond everyday for her students.  She makes extra learning activities, flashcards and gives incentives for learning many different class's material.  Mrs. Dunford even volunteers after school to help her students with their History Fair projects.  Mrs. Dunford is pulled in many directions during the day and she goes about each day with a smile on her face.

Lorena Middle School is blessed to have a jewel like Mrs. Dunford. She is full of gusto and love for students and staff. There is not a day that we don't see her making many steps through the hallways in search of a group of students to encourage and support or running to the rescue of a teacher in distress.  WOW! From the bottoms of our hearts, thank you Mrs. Dunford - you are a constant support to everyone at Lorena Middle School.
