When it comes to choosing a career, some young people follow in the footsteps of their ancestors.
Being a school teacher is often a profession that runs in the family and sometimes, it leads to a Golden Apple Award.
Miss Alyssa Vehshecco is a fourth-grade learning support teacher at North East Intermediate School. Her mother and grandmother were teachers and she couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
She learned at an early age that being a teacher was so much more than having summers off.
The mom of this week’s student nominator says Miss Veshecco helped her daughter, Chloe, grow and gain confidence. She says she goes above and beyond to help her students.
Sam Comfort of Edinboro University says, “I think it’s very evident the success that she has. Her students have such dedication to her to nominate her for this award; I think it’s wonderful.”
