We know how important the support and guidance of teachers is in helping students to prepare for university and beyond.
This past summer, the members of the Stanford Class of 2020 were given the opportunity to acknowledge a former educator who played a significant role in their intellectual, academic, and personal development. Nicole Ticea ‘16, chose to honour Senior School Science Teacher, Dennise Dombroski.
We were delighted to present this award to Dennise on November 22nd during Senior School Assembly, and recognize her for the meaningful impact she had on Nicole’s time at York House.
In Nicole’s own words, “Beyond Ms. D’s intelligence and scientific passion, there lies the most kind-hearted soul I have ever met. In Grade 8, she approached my timid self with an intriguing proposal: present at the local science fair. Ms. D’s boundless energy was contagious; we discussed everything from new research ideas, cool technologies, and funding. It’s hard to quantify Ms. D’s impact, simply because ALL that I love seems to stem from that first fair I entered back in Grade 8.”
A well-deserved congratulations Ms. D!
