After an entire school year, the Golden Apple Teacher of the Year is honored. The winner was Erie High School Health and Physical Education Teacher Michelle Bennett.
Bennett was presented with the award during a ceremony and dinner at Edinboro University, who partners in the Golden Apple Award with JET 24. She spoke about the reward she gets every day from teaching, saying, “…that’s one of the rewarding things is to say you might not believe in yourself, but I believe in you all day long and I know that you’re going to do great things.”
Our own Lou Baxter emceed the event while Traci Teudhope served as guest speaker.
