Congratulations to 2020 Teacher of the Year: Matthew Beaton!
DREAM’s Teacher of the Year award recognizes an exceptionally dedicated and impactful teacher who inspires students, families, fellow teachers, and the entire DREAM community. DREAM is thrilled to announce that the 2020 Teacher of the Year award goes to Matthew Beaton.
Matt joined the DREAM family in the second founding year of DCHS as the 10th grade Global History Teacher. This past year, Matt served as the Grade Team Lead for 10th Grade, where he worked alongside the Building Leadership Team to craft policy and roll out school-wide milestones including End of Year Projects. By collaborating with his co-teacher, Grant White, Matt created a project-based curriculum centered on the year-long essential question: How can history be a tool for liberation?
Matt views his partnerships with his fellow 10th-grade teachers as the key to student achievement. A fellow DREAM teacher described him as “an incredible part of every team [who] somehow manages to be there for every possible person all at once.”
We’re proud to celebrate the success of our teachers. Congrats, Matt!
