Teacher You Can Count On - Doris Beseda

Doris Beseda is the computer teacher at Dunbar Junior High, but her first job was in retail sales. Beseda uses her sales skills to keep her students attention, but all her students agree, they're already sold on her method of teaching.

"I didn't want to be left behind technology wise so I just wanted to stay up with things," says Beseda.

According to her students at Dunbar Junior High, Beseda stays current with more than just technology.

"The way she teaches us and the way she does creative things with the technology, the computer," says Latacha Fonseca, an eighth grader at Dunbar Junior High.

"I try to put it in words or things they would relate to. For example when we started databases we did a database on the most famous NBA stars," says Beseda.

Although Beseda works hard to make her class unique, she knows technology is key in her student's future success.

"I really hope they leave knowing knowledge is power and if they get a good education that it will take them anywhere they want to go," says Beseda.

Beseda's message is already inspiring students like Fonseca.

"I would like to do something with technology when I grow up," says Fonseca.

It's Beseda's belief in each of her students and her passion for increasing their knowledge of computers that makes her a teacher you can count on.
