Teacher of the Month: Mr. DiBarto
By Kayla Zadel
"I love to write," says Harley Keith. No matter what subject they love most, their teacher, is a favorite across the board.
Mr. DibBarto traded in his firefighter helmet for rulers and pencils.
"I was a Red Cross volunteer for 14 years and teaching Red Cross to fourth graders and I decided that I would like to have a career in teaching." He's always had a love for teaching. "It's the time of my life. I'm having a great time teaching here at Oak Dale and being with fifth graders."
"He's the greatest teacher. He treats every student like the should be treated," explains Alan Fernandez.
"I love the way he's funny and he just talks to us," says Harley.
