Third Grade Teacher Jessica Rodriguez

My name is Jessica Rodriguez and this is my first year as a third grade teacher at Dwight. I graduated from Arkansas Tech University with a degree in early childhood and a minor in Spanish. I am currently working on my masters for teaching English as a second language. Before becoming a classroom teacher in 2016, I worked two years at Dwight as an instructional aide. I love working at Dwight Elementary and there is no other place I would rather be.

Third Grade Teacher Dessie Dacus

My name is Dessie Dacus. I grew up in Russellville and graduated from Russellville High School. I received my degree in early childhood education from Arkansas Tech University in 2010. I have been teaching at Dwight since 2010, and I couldn't be happier to be a Lil' Cyclone. I am married to Jeff Dacus, and we have one son, Dylan. Some of my hobbies are running, gardening, and beekeeping.
