This week’s Golden Apple Award puts a bow on the career of a Waterford teacher who is moving on after four decades in the fifth grade. Lou Baxter has our story…
Mrs. Donna Eaton is getting the Golden Apple Award just in time. This is her last year in the classroom after 40 years of teaching. She’s going to be a grandma for the first time this summer and she’s looking to do more in the Waterford community.
So, what can this seasoned educator share about success? She says to respect them in order to get respect from them and to enjoy them because there’s something new every day.
Jena Young is one of Mrs. Eaton’s Fifth Graders who felt her teacher deserved recognition for a job well done.
The day we surprised Mrs. Eaton with the Golden Apple happened to be Valentine’s Day, so it was only fitting that her husband was there to surprise her too… with roses.
Congratulations, Donna Eaton, on a job well done and for being this week’s Jet 24 Edinboro University Golden Apple Award Winner.
