Congratulations to the 2017-2018 Teachers of Distinction


We are proud to announce the Golden Apple Teacher Recognition Program’s 2017-2018 Teachers of Distinction. This year, Hurricane Irma provided an opportunity for each school to bring forward a teacher and best practice to highlight on behalf of their school. From this group of Teachers of Distinction, Champions For Learning’s community-based selection committee will identify five teachers to highlight as Golden Apple recipients. Click here to see the list of Teachers of Distinction.

The Teachers of Distinction and the Golden Apple recipients will be honored at the Golden Apple Celebration of Teachers Dinner presented by Suncoast Credit Union on April 16, 2018, at the Naples Grande Beach Resort.

We’d like to thank our presenting sponsor, Suncoast Credit Union and all of the support they provide educators and students.  We would also like to thank additional Golden Apple Champion Level Sponsors:  CenturyLink, Moorings Park, Naples Daily News, NBC-2 Waterman Broadcasting and Perna-Rose Foundation for Hope.

Opportunities to sponsor a school to attend the event are available. For more information on event sponsorships and ticket sales click here.
