Three decades is a long time to do anything, but that’s how long this week’s Golden Apple Award Winning teacher has been in the classroom. This week, we found our winner at a local charter school.

Deborah Barger taught for 20 years in parochial schools and for the last decade, has been at Erie Rise Leadership Academy Charter School.  

Teaching is a life-long passion for Barger.  She says she loves her students and wants them to know she’s on their side.

Student Nominator Unique Russell says Mrs. Barger always has a beautiful smile and has the biggest heart.
