From delivering mail to delivering knowledge, that’s part of the story for this week’s Golden Apple Award. Lou Baxter has more from the Penncrest School District.
Mr. Andy Nesbitt is a 5th Grade Teacher at Cambridge Springs Elementary School. He’s only been teaching five years. He used to be a mailman, a waiter, and managed a car rental agency before he found himself at a YWCA working in a before and after school program, and “I loved it,” says Nesbitt.
Students say he’s the “best teacher ever” and that “he makes learning fun,” and even that he’s why they “love coming to school.” The kids say he comes to their sporting events and things outside of school.
Coming to school, helping to pay tribute to this week’s winner, the President of Edinboro University, Dr. H. Fred Walker. “It’s a great day when we do this kind of thing.”
And, that’s why Mr. Nesbitt says he has no regrets about his mid-life career change.
It’s all about Andy Nesbitt, this week’s JET 24 Edinboro University Golden Apple Award Winner.
