What the school division said about this Excellent Educator: Dana Napier started conducting mock interviews for York High School economics and personal finance students. This program has since grown into a division-wide initiative. Napier worked to start a fashion marketing course. She voluntarily sponsors the DECA club, mentors new teachers, and supports cooperative education. Napier constantly seeks new ways to engage students. She incorporates a wide variety of instructional technologies and went as far as to grow silk worms for an instructional unit on textiles.
