Teacher of the Year — Mr. Pivec
by Carolina Beacham, 5th Grade
Mr. Pivec, our beloved teacher of the year, went to Penn State University to get his degree in teaching. After receiving his degree, he accepted a job here at Dillard and has been teaching here for 8 years. He enjoys teaching because he loves enriching the minds of students and enjoys watching students grow and change. He said, “I live for moments when students realize that they have a brain and that they have the potential to learn amazing things.” His favorite part of being a teacher is students coming back to visit after being away for many years.
When he’s not teaching, Mr. Pivec enjoys spending time with his wife and the pet beagle, Tess. He and his wife enjoy visiting national parks and have been to over 50.
I believe that Mr. Pivec deserves this award and will continue to do an amazing joy teaching. I am proud to call him my teacher.
