Dana loves exploring new ways to make education meaningful to learners of

forward on life's journey.

Dana was named Napa County Educator of the Year in 2008 and most recently
earned the 2014 California Association for the Gifted Distinguished Service
award. She shares her life with her husband and their wonderfully creative,
twice-exceptional son. You can learn more about Dana at
