Board of Education Vice President Victor Zack, Ward Elementary Principal Kathy Nigro, Ward fifth grade teacher Dalizy Beltran, and Ward assistant principal Susan Padilla recognize Beltran for her contributions.

Dalizy Beltran is a bilingual teacher at B.J. Ward in Bolingbrook who goes above and beyond to create a positive and enthusiastic learning environment for her students.

Before the school year starts, Mrs. Beltran sends each student a handwritten postcard, welcoming them to a new year of school.

She asks students to share with her the dates and times of their after school activities so she can attend whenever possible. Beltran also sponsors the Girl Power Club to help girls boost their confidence.

She also single-handedly created the first College and Career Day at B.J. Ward, inviting both community businesses and parents to present to Ward students.
