DECA's 2017-2018 Teacher of the Year: Professor Ordonez
In Professor's Ordonez's own words: It has been a great honor to be selected as the Teacher of the Year 2017-2018 at DECA.  I was a professor at University of Havana for ten years, and seventeen years as a teacher in DeKalb County.  I am committed to teach Spanish language and culture, but as an educator I am committed to teach beyond the content area.
 
Personal experiences like learning a second language to survie, being a sailor, a professor at University of Havana, and a TV script writer gave me tools to use in my classes.  Students also learn from the teachers' experiences if we are able to transmit them the positive side of our lives.
