ABOUT DREAM TECH ACADEMY
Head of School's Welcome,
Welcome to Dream Tech Academy. I'm Danette Buckley, Head of School and Teacher here at the Academy.
I've been a classroom teacher for over 10 years. Before becoming an Educator, I was a Social Service Worker. Then I earned my BA Degree in Elementary Education and later my MEd Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I've taught in over 3 states as I travelled with my husband, Akean who is a Staff Sergeant in the Army. We have 3 beautiful children, Alyssa (14), Joshuah (12) and Rachel (11). They were the inspiration behind Dream Tech Academy and the motivation to keep on thriving.
Dream Tech Academy provides a solution for parents and students who are in search of something truly personal. Too often we hear from our children that they didn't understand something but the teacher couldn't go over it because they ran out of time. Or, it was hard to concentrate because of all the noise in the classroom. Or, they hate going to school because it's too hard, or it's too easy. As a parent, I'm sure you've heard some version of these statements. Here at Dream Tech, we pride ourselves in offering something more. More than your average classroom, more than your average teacher-student relationship, more than your average learning experience. We offer a truly personalized learning path.
I am hopeful that you will find what you need for your children, and that you as a parent can be happy, knowing that your child is being challenged but not frustrated as he/ she learns.
My own children are thriving here at Dream Tech and I hope you can see similar results in your child.
Welcome and we are thrilled to have you as part of our growing family.
Danette Buckley, MEd
Head of School
Our History & Vision
Dream Tech Academy was born in 2013 while the Head of School, Danette Buckley was stationed in Hawaii. Over time the idea has grown and changed to what it is today. Mrs. Buckley has always envisioned a school where technology was used to enhance the learning experience for all students.
Imagine a school where students worked at their level and build their way up, to excel beyond what we could ever imagined. A school where students weren't left behind because they couldn't keep up in class, or where students were pulled out of the classroom because they needed more than what the general education teacher could provide? Students who misbehave out of boredom or frustration, would be no more. Students would be challenged through rigorous education that was personalized for them.
Students would no longer compete against each other for grades or who met their AR goal, or who got As, but rather, compete against themselves to make themselves better. Each day, the student would set a goal for themselves, adn work towards achieving that goal.
That's the school we strive to create and the school that we are continually improving on. Our vision is to reach children of all economic background and provide them with a program of study that is truly personalized to meet them where they are and take them to great heights. We invite parents to become a part of the journey, in offering students an environment where learning is truly personal.
