Support Julia Leave a comment for Julia

Julia Dolce was nominated by Kathleen Denise Williams, the grandparent of a student.

As a special education teacher, Ms. Dolce helps children develop into their own individual personalities that shine. She makes every student feel welcomed and helps them with their own personal successes. With Ms. Dolce's help, children come out of their shell, start to build confidence, communicate on a higher level, and even maintain eye contact for longer periods of time.

"I watched my grandson grow up from an introverted little boy to an outgoing child who loves to spend his time doing creative things. For the first time ever, he spent the night away at camp," Williams said. "It is wonderful to see! My grandson just loves Ms. Dolce. I would recommend her to all special needs parents because she truly is an angel. She has taken what others might consider difficult, and has made it look easy!"

Mrs Dolce is a wonderful person as well as special educational teacher, she truly does go over and past beyond with each of her students individual needs. Mrs Dolce has came to my house to talk to me personally about plans for my grandson. She has also provided lunches and snacks for Maurice when I didn't have them. She went out of her way to bring food to my house once when I ran low..she's amazing?? Maurice was afraid to go to middle school, but with all the help over the last years from Mrs Dolce, he's no longer afraid. I personally feel she taught him how important it is to grow up, and not be afraid. I know for a fact she taught him things I couldn't. I went on a couple school field trips with them and I Loved how she interacts with her students. if she's like this to her students, just imagine how she is with her own children. Maurice and his granma Love Love Love Mrs Julia Dolce ???

I believe this nomination speaks volumes to all of her hard work, dedication, and educational accomplishments. What she is able to accomplish each and every day with her students is remarkable and is also no surprise, as I watch her spend countless hours preparing, when most people have put down the books to relax or go to bed. I have always admired her passion and willingness to help those in need. She is not afraid to try something new to achieve goals that most thought impossible. She is a wonderful person and wife.

Mrs. Dolce was a awesome teacher to my child. She goes over and beyond to meet the needs of my son. She not only gave him the tools he needs to be a awesome student, she also taught him how behave and what to expect in the real world. So for that she will be truly missed and is very deservant of this life changers award!

When I heard the news of Julia's honor, I felt elated. The feeling of happiness you feel, when someone you've respected and admired for so long, is respected and admired by all. I have witnessed her love and devotion to children for many years. My memories are flooded with all the examples of her graceful and loving encounters with her students, always putting her students before herself. She has been a great inspiration to me. I have relied on her many times to help me make decisions about how to respond to my own students with love and respect. She has always given me the most thoughtful insight. Congratulations Bella!

I have worked with Julia Dolce for ten years, and she is an absolutely fabulous teacher! She truly cares very deeply about all children, and always advocates for what is best for them.

There is no one I know more deserving for this honor. I was fortunate enough to be Julia’s principal for eight years. I called her “my miracle worker”. She has such compassion and commitment for children. I have watched her change the lives of her students and their entire family. Julia is one of the best educators I have had the privilege of working with in my 33 years in education. She’s a role model for all!!
