Congratulations to this year's Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Carolina Dennis! Mrs. Dennis has taught 2nd grade bilingual at Northlake for the past five years. She graduated from TWU in 2009. She chose teaching because she wanted to carry on her parents willingness to help and inspire students to reach their full potential. Her love and desire to teach 2nd grade started when she was a student teacher.
