The Golden Apple Teacher Recognition Program
Teachers have the opportunity to share best practices with each other and the community through the time-honored Golden Apple program. Not only are great practices highlight for teachers to learn from each other, but the recognition and celebration event honors the teacher profession and the significant respect our community has for teachers.
