Iroquois teacher earns Golden Apple Award

A lifelong dream finally realized has led to this week's Golden Apple Award presentation.

Karen Barringer is living the dream teaching physical education at Iroquois Elementary School.

After college, she took a 20-year detour to get here.

In this gym class, she's raising heart rates with a drumming activity that the kids love. She says physical education teaches children so many lifelong lessons.

Madison Miller, formerly our Golden Apple mascot, nominated Barringer after having her as both a gym teacher and a running coach.

Congratulations Karen Barringer, this week's Jet 24 Edinboro University Golden Apple Award winner.
