TOP Students at Rockdale High School have chosen math teacher Deborah Dean (center) as Teacher of the Month for November. "I have been a teacher at RHS for the past thirty-one years," says Dean. "However, I TEACHER continue to learn new things from my students everyday." Dean and husband Harvey have two sons, Dex and Dillon. Sponsored by Peer Assistance Leadership (P.A.L.), the Teacher of the Month program honors teachers who have a positive attitude, care about the students, and are knowledgeable, organized and available. Winners receive a decorated door and certificate of appreciation. Pictured with Dean are P.A.L. members (l-r) Evan McCoy, Allyson Muston, Julie Hromcik and Sylvia Avila.
