Golden Apple Award 11/15/2017 - Mrs. Emalie Nagle

Teaching from the heart; that's one of many qualities found in this week's Golden Apple Award Winning Educator.  Lou Baxter reports on an educator, her students say, is more than a teacher.

Emalie Nagle is an English Teacher at North East High School and she was surprised by this recognition.  "It's thrilling," she says, "I spent my whole life trying to figure out how to help kids and make sure they are prepared for the future, have plans, success... it's amazing."

Mrs. Nagle has been teaching here for 19 years, but before that, she was a North East student, inspired to give back to her community.  "I had some amazing influences who prompted me to think about teaching as a career and I've always been appreciative of what they did for me and so I felt like maybe I can give back to some students who need extra help and support, so here I am."

This week's student nominator says Mrs. Nagle has turned a dreaded class into a favorite. Sydney Swoger tells us, " she finds a way so that you can understand it easier...  so, instead of sitting there the whole time going, 'I don't know if it's right,'  you say what you're thinking and she helps you figure out what she wants you to say".

Mary Jo Melvin, PhD, Edinboro University says, "she teaches from the heart.  I think teaching from the heart personalizes it all, and I don't think there's any better way to teach".

Congratulations, Mrs. Emalie Nagle, this week's JET 24 Edinboro University Golden Apple Award Winner.  To nominate your favorite teacher, click here and fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
