Golden Apple Award 10/11/2017 - Kim Lenart

We know every teacher honored with a JET24 Golden Apple Award is special, but tonight, Lou Baxter features a Union City teacher who has a small classroom of special students, learning skills for life.  She is empowering young people for success. 

Mrs. Kim Lenart is a Life Skills Teacher at Union City Middle School.  The three time Edinboro University graduate is noted for unique ways to teach students important lessons in life.  For example, she developed a coffee cart program where her students travel the hallways, selling coffee to teachers once a week.  This teaches her kids what it takes to run a small business.    

Mrs. Lenart is emotionally invested in her class.  She tells us, "I just love the kids; seeing the progress..." 

And, her kids love her, saying, "she to me is... this classroom... is so important."

Congratulations, Kim Lenart, this week's JET24 Edinboro University Golden Apple Award Winner.  To nominate your favorite teacher for a Golden Apple Award, click here and fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
