Each week, we surprise a worthy teacher with the Golden Apple Award. We usually make the presentation in the classroom, but once in a great while, the teacher we’re about to surprise isn’t in the classroom.
Mrs. Katie Walsh teaches fourth grade at Rolling Ridge. She’s been educating young people for about a dozen years after deciding her initial career choice was missing something.
Mrs. Walsh says she thinks her students are hysterical and she learns something from them every day.
Student nominator Chloe Knepper says her teacher has a soft voice and shining smile and that makes everything better when you’re in fourth grade. “She’s my favorite teacher,” she tells us, “she cares about all the kids”.
Congratulations, Katie Walsh, this week’s JET 24 Edinboro University Golden Apple Award Winner. To nominate your favorite teacher, click here and fill out the form on the page.
