Dominguez, a high school teacher, professor, journalist, writer, and moderator based in Hollywood, Florida, was one of 5,800 applicants nationally who submitted stories to a Disney-sponsored contest about using imagination-powered learning in ways that drive change in the lives of students and communities. She was one of only 50 teachers in the country to be recognized by Disney.

Separately, Dominguez was named Boca Raton High School Teacher of the Year. She said, “It’s such an honor, especially since I went from the newsroom to the classroom, and it was such a career change. I fell in love with teaching as an adjunct college professor and I have not looked back since. I love this job and my students.”

Dominguez has taught Multimedia Journalism at UFCJC since August 2021.
