Golden Apple / Outstanding Educator


The Golden Apple is presented to an individual who has significantly contributed to their learning community by enhancing educational outcomes for all children. This award recognizes individuals who go beyond the normal expectations of their jobs. Award winners find innovative ways to make learning fun and challenge students to be their best. An educator is not limited to a teacher and may also be defined as an assistant, a specialist, a support staff member, an administrator, or a bus driver.
