Mike Labbe, 5/10/2017

From serving his country for decades to serving the students of Warren County, this week's Golden Apple Award Winning Teacher is using a lifetime of experience to help students succeed.  

Mr. Mike Labbe teaches social studies at Eisenhower Middle School in Warren County.  His 17 year teaching career follows 20 years as an aerospace mechanic in the US military.

His decades of working around the world gives him life experiences that help in the classroom.

"You just use what you need," says Labbe, "that's what teaching is".  Mr. Labbe says he didn't love school so much as a student, but finds real value in it as a teacher.  "If you're around these kids, you see growth."

This week's student nominator is one of those who keeps her teacher young.  She appreciates his support in the classroom.  "He's there as a support system."

Congratulations, Mike Labbe, this week's JET 24 Edinboro University Golden Apple Award Winner.
