Karen Barringer

Golden Apple Award

A life-long dream finally realized has led to this week’s Golden Apple Award presentation.

From Lawrence Park, Karen Barringer is living the dream, teaching Phys. Ed. at Iroquois Elementary School. After college, she took a 20 year detour to get here.  Nursing seemed like a good thing to do.  In this gym class, she’s raising heart rates with a drumming activity that the kids love. She says phys. ed. teaches children so many life-long lessons.  “They need to learn that we don’t win at everything.”

Madison Miller, formerly, our Golden Apple mascot, nominated Ms. Barringer after having her as both a gym teacher and a running coach.  “She’s an amazing teach and an even better person.”

Congratulations, Karen Barringer, this week’s JET 24 Edinboro University Golden Apple Award Winner.
